Unquiet Residues: The Midden Seminar

Starts: 9 April 2008

Cardiff School of History and Archaeology, Cardiff University

9th April 2008

This event will focus specifically on recent research on the southern British ‘midden’ sites of the first half of the first millennium BC. These complex monumental settlements are increasingly recognised as important phenomena of the transition from the Late Bronze Age to the Early Iron Age, and this focussed research day aims to review various recent research projects, to reconsider some of the most prolific materials recovered and to broaden discussion ofthe interpretation of these sites. Presentations will tackle particular issues such as formation processes, depositional trends, social networks, landscape settings and the opportunity will be taken to discuss comparable artefact rich sites from southern and eastern Britain. All members of the archaeological community and the general public are welcome – discussion and debate is encouraged on the day.
