Henry Clarke (Leeds), ‘Commemorating Life in Funerary Contexts in the Ancient Durius Valley'.

Date: 30-11-2017
Time: 17:00 - 18:00

All are welcome to attend this Leeds Classics Research Seminar which will be presented by Henry Clarke, Teaching Fellow in Roman History and Culture at the University of Leeds.

Henry will be presenting a paper on ‘Commemorating Life in Funerary Contexts in the Ancient Durius Valley'.

This talk will draw on research from Henry's recently submitted PhD thesis on local identity, cultural change and landscape relationships in the Durius River Valley (the modern Duero/Douro in the Iberian peninsula) during the establishment of Roman power.

In 2017, Henry's paper on 'Co-producing 'Place' and 'Identity' in the Upper Durius Valley' was published in the Proceedings of the Twenty-Sixth Theoretical Roman Archaeology Conference: Sapienza Università di Roma, 16th-19th March 2016.
