A conference exploring how peoples of early medieval Europe, AD 400-1100, organized their dwellings, settlements and landscapes, so as to constitute and represent their social identities of household, community, religion, ethnicity, status, kinship and gender. A range of international speakers will investigate the subject at scales of household, dwellings, localities and regions. Archaeologists from across Britain and Ireland and northwest Europe will present papers describing recent exciting archaeological discoveries and the stories that they enable us to tell about how people lived together in the past.
International speakers will provisionally include Helena Hamerow (University of Oxford); Chris Loveluck (University of Nottingham); Martin Carver (University of York); Chris Lowe (Headland Archaeology); Simon Gilmour (Society of Antiquaries of Scotland); Sally Foster (editor Medieval Archaeology); Anne Crone (AOC Scotland); David Griffiths (University of Oxford); Aidan O’Sullivan (UCD); Finbar McCormick (QUB); Thomas Kerr (QUB); Linzi Simpson (MGL); Stephen Harrison (UCD); Fintan Walsh (IAC), Matt Seaver, Jonathan Kinsella, Lorcan Harney (EMAP), amongst several others to be confirmed.
