Where Land Ends: Paul Palmer

"As an island nation, Britain has a vast coastline. People have been using most of it ever since the island became populated, and their traces have accumulated at the edge of the land through the ages. We will explore a variety of evidence around the coast to reveal our connection with ‘the edge’ and our enduring fascination with this convoluted line between the worlds of the dry and the wet! Work of the new community-led CITiZAN project (Coastal and Intertidal Zone Archaeological Network) will also be a focus for the course."
