Josh Pollard on “The Avebury Living with Monuments Project”

Living with Monuments: life and cultural landscape around Avebury, c.4000–1000BC

Josh Pollard is a Professor in Archaeology at Southampton University, specialising in the Neolithic and Early Bronze Age periods in the UK and NW Europe.  His particular interest is monuments and their siting in the landscape, notably at Stonehenge and Avebury.  He worked on the Stonehenge Riverside Project which helped to show that the Stones, like the henge at Avebury, are connected to a wider landscape of monuments and sites. Josh’s collaborative work at Avebury in recent years continues on the Living with Monuments Project.  Archaeological students and specialists are gaining new insights about the prehistoric people who lived in the Avebury region.  This year Josh is joint leader of excavations at the extensive West Kennet Neolithic palisaded enclosures, identified via aerial photography and investigated earlier in the 1990s.  Josh’s talk will focus on the monuments and sites of Avebury and what they can tell us about those who built them.
