Prehistory Research Section Christmas talk UPDATE - now to be delivered via Zoom

The Prehistory Research Section 4th December talk will now be delivered via Zoom. Details below: 

Dr. Helen Chittock - 'Iron Age art in East Yorkshire: What did decoration do?'

Dr Helen Chittock presents new research on Iron Age art, considering how archaeologists define art in Iron Age assemblages and what decorated objects did in Iron Age society. Previous studies of decoration in Europe during this period of later prehistory have traditionally focused on metalwork, but this talk looks to place decorated metalwork within wider material assemblages and contexts. It presents a holistic study of decorated objects from East Yorkshire, featuring some well- known examples of metalwork from the region as well as objects made from a range of other materials. Analysis of these assemblages and their contexts sheds light on the spheres of activity in which decorated objects operated and the purposes they fulfilled.
