Dr Chris Loveluck, Department of Archaeology, gives a lunchtime lecture on archaeological evidence for the nature of Anglo-Saxon and Viking Age societies in the valley of the River Trent and its adjacent region, between the fifth and the mid-eleventh centuries. Key themes discussed will be the formation of the different societies that we call 'Anglo-Saxon' in the region; settlements, landscapes and lifestyles within the Kingdom of Mercia; the role of the Trent as a communication corridor for contacts and trade; the impact of the Viking Age; and the development of the towns and shires of the Trent valley in the tenth and eleventh centuries.
