The 10th Sara Champion Memorial Lecture: ‘Creative destruction: middens at the end of the Bronze Age

Dr Kate Waddington (Bangor University)

This lecture will consider some of the new material culture practices taking place in the Late Bronze Age and Earliest Iron Age transition, paying particular attention to a selection of 'midden' sites in southern Britain. The historical processes which surrounded this storm of material accumulation, and the apparent shifts in materiality, will be explored.
