Description

The session is designed to explore some of the most recent approaches to the problem of ethnicity in medieval archaeology. Ethnicity was a major topic of discussion in archaeology in general in the 1990s, but after the publication of Sebastian Brather's 2004 book, research on this issue is obscured by what appears to be an agnostic and empiricist approach. From pottery to burial rites, and from style to strontium isotope analysis, participants will survey the results of research in the last few years.
