About The Event
AHRC funded PhD researcher, Summer Courts, discusses their research which is focussed on the archaeology of Lowbury Hill in Oxfordshire. The remains of two early Medieval individuals have been excavated from the site, with osteological assessment suggesting one was male and the other was female. The male had been buried within a barrow and the female had been buried within the vicinity of the wall of a Roman enclosure. Summer is exploring the context, relevance, and validity of the wide-ranging interpretations previously made about the site and these two individuals, by re-investigating the archaeological evidence using a range of analytical techniques.
