On Thursday 10th June at 7.30pm, join us for an online lecture led by Dr Helen Chittock will introduce the diverse assemblage of Iron Age archaeological finds we call ‘art’, known for their breath-taking swirling designs. Dr Chittock will take us on a guided tour of Iron Age art from Stirling and beyond, considering the type of objects that might be considered ‘art’, and discussing how they were used and deposited. These will include the gold torcs that comprise the Blair Drummond Hoard as pictured above. We will also explore these objects within the broader assemblage of Iron Age art from across Europe. The talk will be followed by a Q&A session. Dr Chittock is one of AOC Archaeology’s finds experts, who specialises in later prehistoric artefacts and decorative practices, and recently published a book on arts and crafts in the Iron Age.
This talk is part of our Archaeology project, which is run in partnership with the Callander Heritage Society. Thanks to Historic Environment Scotland funding for making this event possible.
