Provisional reflections on the ‘Marlow Warlord’: an early medieval sentinel burial of the Middle Thames.
Speaker Dr Gabor Thomas, Associate Professor, University of Reading
In August 2020, archaeologists uncovered a richly furnished burial of a tribal warlord dating from the early Anglo-Saxon period. An extensive range of weaponry and other grave furnishings were buried with an imposing, six-foot-tall man representing a high-status warlord from the 6th century AD.
