The second seminar was equally interesting, although not particularly my area of interest. Vicky Crewe presented an abridged version of her PhD dissertation about the reuse of prehistoric monuments in Early to Middle Anglo-Saxon settlements. She presented a few sample settlements, mostly in the middle regions of England, overall in her dissertation she reviewed 42 though. The interesting this about her seminar was that the settlements that did reuse prehistoric monuments either used them intrusively and built into them, or they built around them/incorporated them into their settlements, especially in cemeteries. Both seminars were really interesting and I'm glad I decided to go.
All in all, I really hope to see Bamburgh Castle before I leave. And who knows, maybe I can secure a job or internship working there this summer!
