Day School: The Anglo-Saxon Countryside


EMAS Day School: The Anglo-Saxon Countryside
30 OCtober 2013
Tutor: David Beard MA, FSA

In 1976, Philip Rahtz described the archaeology of Anglo-Saxon rural settlements as "unsatisfactory, incomplete and largely unpublished". However, the last twenty years has seen a number of Anglo-Saxon settlements which have been investigated in considerable detail. There have also been a number of major field survey which allow a much more detailed picture of the Anglo-Saxon countryside to be drawn than was possible before.

This day school will examine how this new evidence has improved our knowledge of Anglo-Saxon rural settlement, the pagan cemeteries and the nature of the countryside during this period.
