Event Details

Sue Hamilton worked as a consultant in prehistoric ceramics and lectured at North London University prior to joining UCL in 1993. Since then she has directed largescale landscape projects on the prehistory of Sussex, Bodmin Moor, southern Italy (Puglia) and Rapa Nui. Her books include Stone Worlds: Narrative and Reflexivity in Landscape Archaeology (with B. Bender and C. Tilley) and Archaeology and Women (with K. Wright and R. Whitehouse).

Landscapes with People: From Prehistoric Britain to Rapa Nui (Easter Island)

Landscape Archaeology concerns the relationship between human beings and geographical space. Landscape Archaeology as a term emerged in the 1970s. Since then the discipline has diversified from a focus on economic and environmental issues to the interpretation of landscapes as particular places that are socially used, understood and experienced by their inhabitants. Sue Hamilton will discuss the methodological and interpretative approaches that relate to a people-centred landscape perspective, drawing on her work in Europe and the Pacific. She will make a case for the central role of the fieldworker in understanding peopled landscapes of the past.
