Archaeology and the small finds of North-East England

Friday, 20 April 2018

Details

A Finds Research Group, Material and Visual Culture Research Group (Department of Archaeology, Durham University) and Architectural and Archaeological Society of Durham and Northumberland joint conference.

A one-day interdisciplinary conference held at the University of Durham Science Site The Finds Research Group, in conjunction with the Material and Visual Culture Research Group (Department of Archaeology, University of Durham) and the Architectural and Archaeological Society of Durham and Northumberland present a special one-day interdisciplinary conference to be held in the historic city of Durham, a UNESCO World Heritage Site and home of some of the finest medieval architecture in Europe.

The theme of the conference ‘Archaeology and the small finds of North-East England’ aims to showcase recent archaeological discoveries of North-East England – a sprawling region of beautiful countryside encompassing several major cities, towns, rivers and coastal ports. Steeped in history itself, Durham City will provide the perfect backdrop for a conference which brings leading academic experts across the disciplines of the Anglo-Saxon and Viking periods, medieval pilgrimage, late- and post-medieval material culture, conservation of artefacts, researching artefacts, community archaeology and museum exhibitions. Together they will explore the lives of the people who lived in the region through the weapons, traded goods, tools, household and everyday objects they left behind to be rediscovered as chance finds or in controlled archaeological excavations.
