Oxford Archaeology's fifth research seminar will focus on early medieval cemeteries in south-eastern and north-western England. Using evidence from Oxford Archaeology's excavations in Cambridgeshire, Suffolk and Cumbria spanning the late 5th to the 11th centuries AD, this seminar will explore themes across sites of varying character, ranging from the pre-Christian period to the early monastic and Anglo-Scandinavian era. It will take the opportunity to put forward some new questions relating to a range of issues, including community, ethnicity, burial expression, chronology and transition, amongst others.
The live webinar, consisting of a series of talks and subsequent discussion led by a distinguished panel of experts, will be held online on Thursday 7th July at 4.30-6.30pm. Our speakers for the session are Stuart Ladd (OA East), Toby Martin (University of Oxford), and Adam Parsons (OA North) with an introduction from our CEO Ken Welsh.
The session will chaired by Prof. Helena Hamerow, with panelists including Dr Sam Lucy, Prof. Clare Downham, Rachel Newman and Prof. Duncan Sayer.
