Professor Powlesland will be running two Specialist Interdisciplinary Graduate Workshops at Leicester, on the theme of Landscape Archaeology.

Workshop 1: Monday 17 June (2.30–4.00) – Farmstead, Hamlet or Village ~ eking out a living in the ‘Anglo-Saxon’ Landscape

Workshop 2: Tuesday 18 June (11.00–12.30) – Settlement and Landscape: archaeology above ground and below
NB: This workshop will be held at the Prebendal Manor, Nassington (courtesy of Jane Baile). A minibus will leave Leicester at 10.00.


Places are limited, and first priority goes to MA, PhD and Early Career researchers currently studying at Leicester, but Leicester undergraduates or and graduate students from further afield, especially in Birmingham and Nottingham are welcome to attend. The workshops will focus on medieval evidence but the issues will be of wider relevance, so students studying other periods are very welcome too.

Please contact Jo Story to reserve a place.
