Collaborative Doctoral Award (AHRC Northern Bridge Doctoral Training Partnership):Bones of the Northumbrian Landscape: a zooarchaeology of early medieval Jarrow.
Jarrow Hall is delighted to be able to share a great opportunity to work with us and be awarded a PhD in zooarchaeology. You’ll be researching the collection of animal bones found at Jarrow Monastery, which is one of the most important early medieval sites in Northern England.
This fully funded studentship is a collaborative doctoral award in partnership with Newcastle University.
It has been made possible through funding via AHRC Northern Bridge Doctoral Training Partnership. The collaboration will provide the successful candidate with training in archaeological sciences, public outreach and experience working with museums and universities.
The research will investigate animal and landscape management strategies, to identify continuity or change in practice. It will also feed into work our museum has been prioritising, to link the farm and grounds with the archaeology collection, as well as future plans to continue to explain the monastery’s place in society.
