Durham University Archaeology Society talk – Saturday 6th June

The Durham University Archaeology Society would like to invite everyone to a talk on pan-European brooches and the style, mortuary context and use of identity and the Cruciform Brooch in Early Anglo‐Saxon England by Doctor Toby Martin in Hatfield College Chapel, North Bailey, Durham at 13:00 for 13:15 on Saturday, 6 June 2015. Please feel free to publicise this widely (see the attached Poster – The lustre of power), with non-members bringing a pound please.

Toby is working on women’s jewellery and dress as vehicles for constructing early medieval and transregional identities from the 4th to the 7th centuries AD. His research encompasses bow brooches in Europe and he seeks to identify changes and variations from areas such as Britain to the Black Sea and further.
