Lecture: How weird is that? Late Iron Age to early Roman burials (and Oppida) in Hertfordshire.
October 19, 2021 7:45 PM - 9:00 PM at Zoom
Lecturer: Dr Isobel Thompson
Recent research, including large and usually science-based projects, has started to transform what we understand about the more distant past, and the transition period from Iron Age to Roman is no exception. It is now evident, for instance, that disposal of the dead was much more complex and varied than we imagined. This talk will outline recent discoveries and ongoing work in Hertfordshire and well beyond, with a look at what these practices may be telling us about the meanings and mindsets behind them.
After compiling the St Albans Urban Archaeological Database in the mid-1990s, Isobel Thompson worked for Herts County Council retiring as the county’s Historic Environment Record Officer in 2018. She is now an honorary research fellow at UCL’s Institute of Archaeology.
