RIVER RAIDERS: Reading the Anglo-Saxon and Viking Landscape

October 21st 10.30-12.30 via Zoom

Examining the archaeological and historical evidence for the settlement and integration of the Vikings into East Anglian life and culture

This FREE 2-hour seminar looks at the archaeological and historical evidence for the longer-term settlement and integration of the Vikings into East Anglian life and culture during the later part of the Anglo-Saxon period. This includes the rich source of evidence offered by the region’s place-names and the material evidence for the adoption of Viking art styles recognised in artefacts from this period.

The presenter is Dr Richard Hoggett, a landscape archaeologist and recognised authority on Anglo-Saxon and Viking East Anglia.

This is the second event of the Breckland Society’s latest project – River Raiders and is being delivered by the Breckland Society as part of the Brecks Fen Edge & Rivers Landscape Partnership scheme

The seminar will be held online via Zoom; there will be a short break about 11.30am. The Zoom link will be emailed to registered participants the day before the event.
