NARSS Talk: Geoarchaelogical quest for seasonal occupation: shielings in the North Atlantic region. Open to all.
On Wednesday, 23 November 2016 from 1600hrs till 1710hrs, Dr Kupiec will discuss the results of her doctoral project, which contributed new archaeological evidence to the debate on transhumance in the Viking and Medieval Periods in Iceland and the Outer Hebrides.
Shielings in these two regions will be examined at new levels of detail, and with new techniques, to improve the previous methodologies for the identification of periodically occupied settlements.
This NARSS Talk will be held in Meston MT3 at Aberdeen University, Scotland, UK.
