Working Stone and Making Places in Neolithic Wales
We are delighted to invite applications for a fully-funded PhD supported by WRoCAH. The PhD student will investigate one of Europe's largest sources of Neolithic axe blades: Graig Lwyd, north Wales. New fieldwork and public outreach at Graig Lwyd led by Parc Eryri (the national park in Snowdonia and the project partner) is revealing an extensive and varied landscape of stone extraction, with exceptional potential for original research. Through fieldwork and artefact analysis, the PhD researcher will generate new knowledge about how stone working made places and landscapes in the Neolithic. It will benefit the project partner by providing evidence to better conserve the stone-working landscape and present Neolithic axe making in vivid and compelling ways.
The deadline for applications is 8 March 2023. Go to WRoCAH's website for further information about the project and the application process.
Contact Bob Johnston for informal enquiries about the project.
