Medieval settlement and infrastructure archaeology seminar series 2021-2022

The inaugural seminar in this series took place in April 2021, and was so successful that we decided to extend it to four seminars, rather than the two originally planned. Papers from our first and second seminars, featuring current work in the UK and Ireland and northern and central Europe, are now available to view on our YouTube channel.
