Excavations at Star Carr 2004-15: New insight into an old site
*Please note earlier start time of 5.30pm*
Star Carr has dominated our understanding of the British Mesolithic. Since its excavation by Grahame Clark between 1949 and 1951 it has been subject to extensive debate and reinterpretation. These led to new questions for the site that could only be addressed through excavation. This talk discusses the results of these excavations between 2004 and 2015 and explores how our understandings of the site have changed. New work beyond Star Carr also enables new understandings of how the site fits into broader patterns of the Mesolithic inhabitation of Britain.
