Off the Record — 20th October — UCL Institute of Archaeology — yours truly!

Super quick post to say this coming Thursday I’ll be giving the first of the IoA World Archaeology Section’s Off The Record lunchtime seminars of the new academic year. I’ll be running through my past, present and future research into -ingas name formations, in particular exploring their potential archaeological implications, using my MA dissertation study of Surrey as the basis. Expect my usual mix of terrible maps, hesitant Old English pronunciation, and one or two new ideas. Best of all, you can bring your lunch (just chew quietly!)

Thanks to the super Sarah Hoile for organising OTR, writing the following blog post which gives all the salient details, and coaxing me into speaking!

We’re pleased to announce that the first Off the Record lunchtime seminar this term will be given by Rob Briggs, talking about Rethinking -ingas: post-Roman social groups, place-names and archaeology in South-East England. Thursday 20th October 12-1pm in Room 209 All welcome, and please feel free to bring your lunch! More Off the Record seminars […]
