Helena Hamerow

Helena Hamerow is Professor of Early Medieval Archaeology and formerly Head of the School of Archaeology at Oxford University. After a BA in Anthropology at the University of Wisconsin-Madison, she undertook a DPhil at Oxford which led first to a Lectureship at Durham University, and then back to Oxford in 1996.

She has a particular interest in the Anglo-Saxon period and how the emergence of kingship and religious communities, as well as the development of formal markets in the 7th to 9th centuries, affected daily life and modes of production.

Helena has written on the settlement archaeology of the North Sea Zone from the period 400-900, and is interested in broad trends in settlement across this region. She also maintains a strong interest in the Upper Thames Valley during the Anglo-Saxon period, and has been involved in several joint projects with OA, notably at Sutton Courtenay and Dorchester-on-Thames.
