Anglo-Saxon Fenland

7 October 2019 @ 7:00 pm - 8:30 pm

£5
Anglo Saxon Fenland

Archaeologies and histories of the fens of eastern England, continue to suggest, explicitly or by implication, that the early medieval fenland was dominated by the activities of north-west European colonists in a largely empty landscape. Using existing and new evidence and arguments, Prof Oosthuizen offers another interpretation.

Her research helps build an understanding of how people such as the Gyrwe (from near Peterborough) were organised within the Fen basin and how they made use of the land.

Speaker: Susan Oosthuizen, PhD FSA FRHistS, Emeritus Professor of Medieval Archaeology, University of Cambridge
