Dr Katie Miller

Shropshire’s Archaeological and Landscape History

Through the Centuries

This talk will discuss the vast and diverse archaeological history of Shropshire, stretching back to the Stone Age up until the Industrial Revolution. It will highlight sites and finds of significance from this region and how they play into the larger discussion of the development and history of Shropshire.

  Dr Katie Miller began study and working in archaeology nearly 10 years ago, beginning with her anthropology degree at University of California: Santa Cruz. She then went on to complete a PhD at the University of Bristol where she examined identity and migration during the 3rd to 7th century AD in southern Britain. Dr Miller is currently managing the Archaeology Lab, a volunteer and curation led project with the Shropshire Museums and Archives.
