Department of Archaeology 40th Anniversary Open Lectures Series
Jonathan Finch will talk on Making Harewood and the Modern World. He will explore how making the Harewood House at the end of the eighteenth century removed the earlier medieval landscape and Gawthorpe Hall, and drew upon the family's involvement in the Atlantic slave trade, based on his excavations at Harewood and fieldwork in the Caribbean.
Other events in this series include:
- Anglo-Saxon Royal Burial Ground at Sutton Hoo
- Objects and encounters at Songo Mnara
- Star Carr
- Feeding Stonehenge
- Roman fort at Malton
