Lee Eales - Tasting the Past: Unearthing the Chemistry of Medieval Beer - Episode 19

Archaeology and Ale is a monthly series of talks presented by Archaeology in the City, part of the University of Sheffield Archaeology Department’s outreach programme.

Archaeology and Ale proudly presents - Lee Eales, and his talk “Tasting the past: Unearthing the Chemistry of Medieval Beer”. This talk took place on Thursday 12th January upstairs at the Red Deer pub in Sheffield.

Lee Eales received a B.A. degree in classical archaeology from the University of Sheffield. He began a career as a commercial field archaeologist with Trent and Peak archaeological unit. After gaining experience with a number of commercial units both in the United Kingdom and Europe he took up a post as a supervisor to undergraduate students in the Archaeology Degree program at Sheffield, specializing in medieval archaeology. In June 2014 he took up a position as a postgraduate research assistant in analytical chemistry, also at the University of Sheffield, specializing in chemical residue analysis of medieval pottery. In particular he uses matrix assisted laser desorption/ionization mass spectrometry imaging (MALDI-MSi) to profile the residue of organic materials captured both on and in the fabric of ceramics dating to the medieval period. He is currently a Ph.D. candidate on a project titled “The Sensory Archaeology of Medieval Brewing, Its Ingredients and Technology.

Chris Atkinson, Roman Credenhill: A Community Investigation - Episode 18

“The Roman Credenhill: A Community Investigation project" was established by Principal Jonathan Godfrey and Teacher of Archaeology and History Jason Williams of   Hereford Sixth Form College and was funded by the Heritage Lottery Fund, Young Roots Programme in 2016.

The primary aim of the project was to involve the AS- and A-level archaeology students of Hereford Sixth Form College in the processes of an archaeological investigation.  The investigation was undertaken over the course of Summer within the Roman Park Playing Fields, Credenhill.
Training was provided by a team of archaeologists from Community Heritage and Archaeology Consultancy, led by Christopher Atkinson, Project Manager; with training in archaeological finds and analysis provided by Herefordshire Council Museum Service.  The students used their new found skills to excavate a little known Roman farm/villa and pottery production site, first discovered in 2014 as a result of a community project funded by the Armed Forces Community Covenant.  The three week long excavation was held between the 11th and 31st July and was open to the public, attracting individuals and families from across Herefordshire … and even Australia!” (information from: https://romancredenhillblog.wordpress.com/about/
