This lecture by Dr Katie Tucker, Research Fellow in Human Bioarchaeology at the University of Winchester, will detail the archaeological, osteological and historical detective work involved in the search for the remains of King Alfred, a collaboration between the University of Winchester and Hyde 900. The project was the focus of a BBC2 documentary in January 2014 and features in the book In Search of Alfred the Great: The King, The Grave, The Legend, co-authored by Katie Tucker with Edoardo Albert. The talk will include many details that do not feature in the documentary or the book.
Dr Katie Tucker is a Post-Doctoral Research Fellow in Human Bioarchaeology at the University of Winchester and a Research Fellow in Human Osteology at the German Archaeological Institute. Her research interests include the study of the skeletal signatures of leprosy and peri-mortem trauma, and she is currently involved in research projects in the UK, Germany, Romania and Ethiopia
