The sixth seminar in the 2017-18 Institute of Archaeology/British Museum Medieval Seminar Series will be given by David Petts (Durham) on 20 February.

Abstract

Despite its importance, the early medieval monastic site of Lindisfarne has seen relatively little archaeological research. This presentation will review the current state of knowledge about the archaeology of the early ecclesiastical presence on the island and review the results of recent fieldwork being carried out on the island by Durham University and DigVentures.

The Medieval Seminar Series is sponsored by the World Archaeology Section at the Institute of Archaeology and the British Museum.

All meetings start at 6pm at the Institute of Archaeology with the exception of the Sir David Wilson Lecture. Attendees are invited to bring news items for announcement before the start of each seminar.
