New Archaeological Discoveries; Finds & Sites in the Louth Area & Wider County
Originally from Grundisburgh in Suffolk, Lisa completed her PhD at Durham University. She then worked as a field archaeologist in East Anglia, going on to teach with the WEA and at Canterbury Christ Church University. After this, she took an internship post with the then Lincs Finds Liaison Officer, Adam Daubney and ultimately ended up with his job! She recently published a book on early Anglo-Saxon art and burial archaeology and has had various articles in international journals. In tandem with her day-to-day responsibilities, she is currently cataloguing the small finds recovered from the early Anglo-Saxon cemetery at Scremby and is project lead on an archaeological investigation of another 5th-6th century cemetery in Lincolnshire.
This talk explores new interesting archaeological finds from prehistory to the post-period in the local area which were reported to the Portable Antiquities Scheme. It also includes a ‘first look’ at current archaeological research projects within the wider county including a newly discovered early Anglo-Saxon cemetery found just north of Lincoln.
