Thank you to last week’s Off the Record presenter, Stuart Brookes, who spoke about Interpreting Rock-Cut Grave Cemeteries: the early medieval burial site and enclosure of São Gens, Portugal, a collaborative project with colleagues from the University of Salamanca. He explored the dialogue between the ‘disordered’ type of early medieval rock-cut grave cemeteries and pre-Christian Anglo-Saxon cemeteries through spatial analysis, and the connections between the granite graves and the nearby settlement. A fascinating insight into the relationships between people and landscape. Watch this space for details of a forthcoming article.
This week, Murray Andrews will be presenting A farewell to arms? Hoards and war in medieval England and Wales. This will be the last Off the Record seminar this term – hope to see you there!
