Speaker information

, Institute of Archaeology, UCL

Amara Thornton (Institute of Archaeology, UCL) explores the connections between sites and seances in early twentieth century archaeology. Concentrating on the archaeologists George Horsfield and Agnes Conway but with reference to Petrie's assistant and lecturer at UCL Margaret Murray, Dr Thornton considers how the use of mediums and psychical research was a larger phenomenon in archaeology than has generally been admitted.
