  • Celtic art, craftmanship and patronage
    19:30 -21:00
    01/04/2022
    Darley Lane, Derby, DE1 3AX

    Speaker: Wendy Morrison

    The usage of the term ‘Celtic’ will be defined and discussed, before investigating the earlier Continental precursors of British art, the earliest Celtic art produced in Britain, and the development of various insular styles. We will examine briefly the different techniques for producing decorated objects, and the types of artefacts as vehicles for art with combinations of forms, layouts and elements of design. Also how art reflected the social standing of owners, the final pre-Roman developments and what happened to Celtic art forms in the Roman-British period.

    Dr Wendy Morrison currently works for the Chilterns Conservation Board as project manager of the NLHF funded ‘Beacons of the Past’ hillforts project. She is also senior associate tutor for archaeology at the Oxford University Department for Continuing Education, and a Fellow of the Society of Antiquaries. Her research areas are prehistoric European archaeology and landscape archaeology, with over a decade of excavation experience in Southern Britain, the Channel Isles and India.
