We’d like to welcome Members of the Society to the third of 2021’s Sussex Archaeology at Live at Home Lectures.
To continue the new series we are lucky enough to be joined by the brilliant Andy Margetts, who will be giving a lecture entitled The Wandering Herd:The South-East’s Medieval Cattle Economy, An Introduction.
Andy writes “The British countryside is on the brink of change. With the withdrawal of EU subsidies, threats of US style factory farming and the promotion of ‘rewilding’ initiatives, never before has so much uncertainty and opportunity surrounded our landscape. How we shape our prospective environment can be informed by bygone practice, as well as through engagement with livestock and landscapes long since vanished. This talk will introduce the key findings of a new book entitled The Wandering Herd. The author hopes this study will change ingrained perceptions regarding the nature of pastoralism within South-East England over the longue durée of the medieval period. It shows the importance of cattle within the evolution of the area’s society, settlement and landscape.”
