Perceptions of the Prehistoric in Anglo-Saxon England: Religion, Ritual and Rulership in the Landscape

Dr. Sarah Semple is Senior Lecturer in the Department of Archaeology, University of Durham.  Her research has focused on the early medieval period in Britain and abroad, and remains landscape centred. She is interested in understanding early medieval interaction with the natural and man-made environment with particular reference to the role of landscape in religion and cult practice and the ideological and political uses of natural topography and ancient remains. She is currently interested in the use of landscape as a means of articulating political affiliation, religious ideas, ideology and identity; the changing perceptions and perspectives of landscape and monumentality across the conversion and pre-Christian and Christian popular beliefs and practices in a landscape context.
