Once given little consideration by most archaeologists, post-medieval material was the ‘stuff machined through’ to get to the ‘interesting layers’ below.
However, thanks to changing attitudes among archaeologists and also a growing dataset of finds recovered by metal-detectorists and others now being recorded with the Portable Antiquities Scheme, there is increasing awareness of the importance of post-medieval finds for understanding the past.
Speakers will include Gary Bankhead, Laura Burnett, Stuart Campbell, Helen Geake, Kevin Leahy, Michael Lewis, Brian Read and Ian Richardson.
