    Lecture

    Speaker, Dr Philip Sidebottom

    The thirteenth volume of the Corpus of Anglo-Saxon Stone Sculpture records all known pre-Conquest carved stones in the counties of Derbyshire and Staffordshire. The array of different styles and ornamentation provides a rich corpus of this material, rarely rivalled elsewhere in England. But what was their purpose; were they simply memorials, or did they mark territorial identities which have now long since gone? The speaker will suggest answers to these and other questions which have long puzzled historians.

    Dr Phil Sidebottom is the co-author of the Corpus of Anglo-Saxon Stone Sculpture, Vol. 13, along with Professor Jane Hawkes of York. He gained a PhD from the University of Sheffield, following his research interests in Anglo-Saxon sculpture and was a lecturer in archaeology until retiring in 2010. He is now a freelance archaeological consultant.
