YORK GIG: I'll be speaking at the Jorvik Viking Centre on September 24th

Sunday, August 5, 2012

 On Monday 24th September, at 7.00 pm, I'll be giving a talk at Jorvik with my academic hat on, on the sculpture of Anglian and Viking York. There is a wonderful display of sculpture as part of their current exhibition, Valhalla: In Search of the Viking Dead, and I was very pleased to be asked to write the material for the display boards. Sculpture has also been borrowed from the Isle of Man: hugely exciting as it rarely travels.
It's also lovely to be inviited back to York as much of The Traitors' Pit is set there, and while I know the city well its archaeological story is always changing and developing.
