Our Helen Thirza Addyman Lecture for 2022 was by Dr Steve Ashby. He discusses recent and ongoing work that draws on a somewhat unlikely source to answer big questions about Viking-Age Europe. Through applying novel biomolecular techniques to the study of hair combs found in settlement and burial contexts across Britain and northern Europe, we are now able to refine and redraw the chronology and geography of the Viking world.
The Helen Thirza Addyman Lecture 2022 is part of our Vikings On Demand series, recordings of our most popular ticketed events from That JORVIK Viking Thing 2021 and 2022 and Archaeology Live 2021. Please note that there is a small charge per viewing which helps us to produce more content in the future. Your purchase gives you access to the film for seven days from the date of purchase.
