Booking information

Event details

An online talk by Charlotte Scull about the different type of animals which once lived at Anglo-Saxon Rendlesham in Suffolk.

Part of a series of 10 online talks Behind the Scenes: Analysing Anglo-Saxon Rendlesham.

An early East Anglian royal settlement has been identified at Rendlesham in south-east Suffolk. For the first time, the experts will be sharing their results to tell us even more about Rendlesham and its connections with the Anglo-Saxon world.

Animals were at the centre of Anglo-Saxon culture, from noble horses to the ordinary pigs and chickens. They would have not only been used for survival but were also symbols of wealth and power. This talk will outline zooarchaeological analysis and explain what it can tell us about the animal bone excavated at Rendlesham.

Meet the experts and get your questions ready to ask them during the live Q&A.

Please Note: The event will be held live online on 17 October at 10am UK time. It will be recorded and the video will be available to view on our website at a later date after the event has ended.
