About Howard M. R. Williams

I am Professor of Archaeology at the University of Chester. My archaeological research interests focus on death, burial and commemoration, particularly for the early medieval period (c. AD 400-1100) in Britain, NW Europe and Scandinavia. I am interested in the relationships between material culture, monuments and landscape in the construction and negotiation of memories, focusing on mortuary practices. I also explore the roles of portable artefacts, materials and substances, tombs, sculpture, architecture and settlements as media and environments for memory work and performance.
