Drawing upon recent advances in the archaeology of Anglo-Saxon elite residences, with a particular focus on ‘Great Hall Complexes’, this paper will explore how settlement perspectives can complement frameworks of interpretation usually applied to early medieval mortuary studies and architectural history. Such comparisons help to underline the 7th century as a highly innovative phase in the development of elite monumental strategies.
The event will be followed by a summer party in the IoA Staff and Research Student Common Room (6th floor, 609). 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.
