Early Medieval Day School

ANGLO-SAXON ARCHAEOLOGY: THE LAST 35 YEARS
David Beard, M.A.

Saturday 23rd July 2011

In 1976, Sir David Wilson edited a seminal work on Anglo-Saxon Archaeology. Like all such works, “The Archaeology of Anglo-Saxon England” generated considerable interest in the subject and prompted a great deal of new research.
Now, 35 years later, we can see the advances that new excavations, new methodologies and new developments such as the Portable Antiques Scheme, have produced.
This Day School looks at the present day state of Anglo-Saxon Archaeology and takes into account new findings such as recent work with heavy metal analysis, DNA analysis and metal detector finds such as the Staffordshire Hoard.
