Session 1508: Reconstructing a 7th-Century Timber Hall

Bede’s World, the museum of early Northumbria, has an experimental form whereon stand a number of full-scale realisations of buildings known from archaeological evidence. Plans now exist to reconstruct Building A4 from Yeavering – a ‘royal hall’. The extent to which a three-dimensional structure can be deduced from the foundation levels of a vanished timber building will be the theme of this round table, at which the reconstruction proposals will be offered for review.
