Medieval Europe Research Group

Our Medieval Europe Research Group enables our archaeologists to use the latest technologies in research both at home and across Europe, including sites key to telling the story of the Crusades.

Investigation range from Anglo-Saxon chronologies and cemeteries, to Welsh crannogs, Viking settlements and pilgrimages to the Holy Land.

Projects include:

  • Early Anglo-Saxon chronology: high-precision radiocarbon dating and Bayesian modelling.
  • Eriswell, post-excavation analysis of the Anglo-Saxon cemeteries
  • Excavations at Cosmeston, a medieval manor and early modern farmstead
  • Excavations at Llangorse, a Welsh crannog
  • Pilgrimage to Jerusalem and the Holy Land 1187–1291
  • Viking and Medieval Settlement in the Western Isles
