Understanding medieval sites in South-East England- a Great Hall lecture

Thursday, 14 August 2014 7pm – 8:30 pm

Set against the backdrop of the magnificent Great Hall, this lecture given by Professor Matthew H Johnson of Northwestern University will report on archaeological surveys of medieval sites at four local National Trust properties.

Join us to hear the results of archaeological surveys at Bodiam, Scotney, Ightham and Knole. Over the last four years a team of archaeologists from the University of Southampton and Northwestern University have worked in partnership with the National Trust to try to understand more about these sites in terms of the medieval landscapes that surround them. Drawing on years of work, the lecture will challenge the idea that the sites were just military castles or pleasure palaces.
