Room 612, UCL Institute of Archaeology

The fourth seminar in the 2018-19 UCL Institute of Archaeology/British Museum Medieval Seminar Series will be given by Aleksandra McClain (University of York) on 15 January.


This talk will discuss the work of the AHRC Network Archaeologies of the Norman Conquest. The goal of the network has been to bring together the different arms of archaeology (academic, professional, heritage) to develop a materially-focused research agenda for the 11th and 12th centuries, and ensure archaeology plays a bigger role in scholarly debates and public perceptions of the Norman Conquest, both of which have been dominated by documentary history.

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

All meetings start at 6.15pm at the UCL Institute of Archaeology. Attendees are invited to bring news items for announcement before the start of each seminar.
