Institute welcomes new postdoctoral researchers

Jane Kershaw is a British Academy Postdoctoral Research Fellow undertaking research on the Viking bullion economy, in which weighed silver was used as a means of exchange, rather than coin. The Bullion Economy of Viking England project will, for the first time, identify the sources of Viking bullion, assess its scale and distribution within England and chart its development over time. The English evidence will be considered within the context of recent excavations in Ireland, Wales and Scandinavia, in the first comparative regional survey of Viking-Age economic zones and relationships.

Marilena Alivizatou returns to the Institute as Postdoctoral Research Associate on the collaborative EU-funded i-Treasures project, co-ordinated by the Centre for Research and Technology Hellas, which deals with intangible cultural heritage (ICH) and the transmission of knowledge. The i-Treasures project will conduct multidisciplinary research relying on the development of both novel methodologies and new technological paradigms for capturing and analyzing different forms of ICH, either traditional or contemporary, and proposing a novel strategic framework for the safeguarding and transmission of ICH.
A very warm welcome (and welcome back!) to them both.
