“A Catalogue of the Late Antique Gold Glass in the British Museum”, by Daniel Thomas Howells is now published (http://bit.ly/1KfTVJb) and will be soon available in the library.
Dr. Howells completed his MA here at Reading in 2006 and then went on to undertake a Phd with the University of Sussex in collaboration with the British Museum.
This publication is the most in depth of its kind since 1901 and is a must-read for all those with an interest in gold glass!
Two of our current PhD students have been appointed to prestigious positions at the British Museum.
Rosie Weetch is just about to complete her PhD on Late Saxon brooches (supervised by Dr Gabor Thomas & Hella Eckardt) and has been working as a project curator at the British Museum since 2012, helping to design the new early medieval gallery and in particular researching and displaying the famous Sutton Hoo treasure.
Helen McGauran will submit her thesis on the circulation of Bronze Age soft-stone artefacts in Bahrain and Cyprus (supervised by Dr Wendy Matthews & Stuart Black) this June, before starting as Project Curator on the Zayed National Museum Project.
Her role is to carry out targeted research into topics and key sites to support the Interpretation team in presenting information on the archaeology of Abu Dhabi and the United Arab Emirates from early prehistory up until the end of the pre-Islamic period, within the new Museum in Abu Dhabi. She will also be involved in some aspects of artefact and other object selection.
