Worked in Stone Conference
Early Medieval Sculpture in its International Context
Wednesday, 31 August 2022 to Sunday, 4 September 2022
Early medieval stone sculptures that survive across Europe at the wayside, in architectural settings, in churches and graveyards, are an exceptional source for understanding the aesthetics and beliefs of early medieval communities. Celebrating the long-running project, the Corpus of Anglo-Saxon Stone Sculpture, this conference provides an in-depth comparative investigation of the development and deployment of sculptural work in stone as a European-wide phenomenon. The conference will place at Durham University, UK, on the Science Site, on Wednesday 31st August to 4th September 2022. It is planned as an in-person event.
With over forty speakers, including four keynote presentations, the conference programme offers a rich array of perspectives, with papers and poster presentations bridging European divides in scholarship and addressing the interdisciplinary interfaces between archaeology, history and art history. More information can be found on Durham University website here as well as a full conference programme.
