Tune in to our Facebook page on Wed 21 Apr at 1pm for our next online talk!

Find out more about Thomas Bateman, a pioneer archaeologist who contributed to Victorian ideas of Anglo-Saxonism by uncovering early medieval graves in the Peak District.

Howard Williams, Professor of Archaeology at the University of Chester, will shed light on some of Bateman’s grave-finds, many of which are held at Weston Park Museum, including the famous Benty Grange helmet.

In this fascinating online talk, you’ll hear what conclusions Bateman drew about the artefacts he found and how his work has a direct bearing on archaeology’s ongoing contribution to the study of England’s origins in today’s world.

Howard Williams is Professor of Archaeology at the University of Chester, has published extensively, and researches public archaeology and archaeologies of death and memory.

If you can’t make the live broadcast, the video will be available to watch later on our Facebook Live page or on our Sheffield Museums Live archive page on our website.
