Topic and Date


Impact of the Vikings on Archaeology and Settlement in the UK, 800 AD to 1000 AD

June 7

Is this all there was to the Vikings: “From the fury of the Northmen deliver us, O Lord”? When did they arrive, did they stay, and what archaeological evidence did they leave behind? The archaeology of the UK from about 500 AD to 1000 AD will be discussed, including Sutton Hoo, the find of the warrior burial and the many burial mounds and barrows of the UK.


The Archaeology of London

July 12 (new date)

What was happening at this site before the Romans? Why did the Romans choose to build up here? After the Romans, how important was the city up to about 1000 AD?
