Barrow Landscapes: Commemorating the Dead in Early Medieval Scotland

13th March 2018 @ 7:30 pm - 8:30 pm

7.30 pm, Regent Lecture Theatre

Speaker: Juliette Mitchell, University of Aberdeen

Juliette Mitchell is an AHRC-funded PhD researcher in Archaeology and her work focuses on the monumental burials of early medieval Scotland, exploring their landscape settings and considering how they reflect social transformation in the first millennium AD. Juliette graduated with an MA in History from the University of Glasgow. While working as a Project Manager in a Stirling-based GIS company, she developed her interest in archaeology through community and research digs. This led her to undertake an MSc in Archaeology of the North at the University of Aberdeen, from which she graduated with distinction in 2014. For her master’s thesis she carried out research into the barrow cemeteries of north-east Scotland, and the results of that work form the basis of a recent publication in Medieval Archaeology.
