Howard Williams

Professor of Archaeology, University of Chester, England

My work investigates a broad range of aspects to the archaeology of early medieval death, burial and commemoration (c. AD 400-1100) focusing on Anglo-Saxon England and Viking Scandinavia. I co-direct Project Eliseg, investigating a ninth-century AD cross-shaft from north Wales. I am the lead archaeologist within the collaborative cross-disciplinary research project ‘The Past in its Place’, investigating the literary and material commemoration of the dead in and around English and Welsh cathedrals, ancient habitations and landscapes.
