Digging the Dirt

Thursday 21 July 2011, 19.00-20.30


Working in mud, examining our latrines and faeces, and treasuring our discarded debris, archaeologists are uniquely placed to offer insights into our complex relationship with waste and dirt. Peer through the lens of archaeology to find out just how dirty our past was, the wonders contained in a speck of soil and what the future holds for the study of our filthy remains.

Speakers:
Ken Thomas, Professor of paleoecology, Institute of Archaeology, University College London
Mark Bradley, Lecturer in Ancient History, University of Nottingham
Christine Finn, Visiting Fellow in Archaeology, University of Bristol

Chair: Brian Dillon, Research Fellow, University of Kent.
