last modified Mar 04, 2016 08:35 AM
Medieval Settlement Research Group 30th Anniversary Spring Conference: 29th April to 1st May at the University of Lincoln.

The spring 2016 conference of the Medeival Settlement Research Group (MSRG) will be held at the University of Lincoln over the weekend from Friday 29th April to Sunday 1st May.

This conference will review recent archaeological investigations in Currently Occupied Rural Settlements (CORS) in eastern England, which is the focus of the majority of the work that has been undertaken by ACA over the years and a number of the speakers are coordinators from villages that have been directly involved with ACA and test pitting, either through HEFA or as community excavations.

The event will start on Friday evening with a wine reception at the University of Lincoln and a tour of the historic quarter. Saturday’s full day of papers will be followed by an optional conference dinner, while papers on Sunday morning will be rounded off with a trip to the
nearby deserted medieval village (DMV) of Riseholme, iconic as the first DMV excavation to be published in Medieval Archaeology!
