Barrows of the Yorkshire Wolds: Prehistory, Inspiration and Legacy

The Yorkshire Wolds is synonymous with prehistoric barrows, from the Neolithic, Bronze Age and Iron Age, to early medieval re-use of these iconic monuments. In the last of our ‘barrows’ conferences, the Prehistoric Society celebrates this iconic landscape: antiquarian histories of investigation; the latest research on the barrow makers, their origins, funerary rites and grave goods; new methods of recording and analysing funerary monuments, and the public, creative value of this extraordinary heritage.
