Public Talk by Top Archaeologist

Residents can hear about an excavation of one of the earliest Neolithic houses in Britain at a public talk organised by the University of Worcester.

Archaeology expert, Dr Steve Sherlock, will be giving a talk entitled Excavations at Street House, North East Yorkshire: From the County’s Earliest Neolithic Settlement to an Anglo-Saxon Princess in One Field.

The talk, at the University’s St John’s Campus on Tuesday (April 2), at 1.15pm, is part of the University of Worcester’s School of Science and the Environment’s Research Seminar Series.

Dr Helen Loney, Principal Lecturer in the University’s Department of Archaeology and Geography, said: “It’s an excellent opportunity for people, especially students and others interested in a career in archaeology, to hear from somebody who is an expert in the field.  They will hear about a long standing and important excavation that has uncovered 4,000 years of history, including one of the earliest Neolithic houses in Britain.”

Dr Steve Sherlock is currently the Lead Archaeologist for the Highways England on its biggest ever road project, the A14 in Cambridgeshire, which employed 250 field archaeologists in 2017-18.

He has been researching the archaeology of North East Yorkshire for the last 40 years.

Specialising in areas of Iron Age settlement and Early Anglo-Saxon burials, he has excavated and lectured, meanwhile his fieldwork is widely published as monographs, thematic conference papers and journals.
