Durham World Heritage Site lecture

(9 January 2019)

This lecture entitled ‘Mind the Gap: who benefits from Heritage?’ given by Professor Dr Friedrich Lueth will take place on Monday, 6 May at 6pm in the Hogan Lovells Lecture Theatre. To register for the event please visit the website.

England in the age of Mercian supremacy is often viewed in the mirror of the neighbouring Carolingian world. While those contacts and influences are certainly very important, the spotlight shone on them reflects the very partial and biassed survival of written sources. Archaeology can tell a different story: one that emphasises Anglian England’s connectedness with the North Sea, Scandinavian and Baltic worlds. This lecture tries to redress the balance through new perspectives from physical evidence.
