AHRC Collaborative Doctoral Award

School of Archaeology & Ancient History, University of Leicester, and the British Museum

Fully funded PhD with enhanced support

A new study of the penannular brooch in Britain

Applications are sought for an AHRC Collaborative Doctoral Award, to be held at the University of Leicester from October 2010, supervised by Professor Colin Haselgrove (School of Archaeology & Ancient History), with joint supervision and training from Dr Roger Bland (Department of Portable Antiquities & Treasure, British Museum). Dr John Naylor and Sally Worrell will act as advisors for the Portable Antiquities Scheme (PAS).

Penannular brooches were widely used in Britain as a form of dress fastener and a symbol of identity for over a millennium, but despite their potential for insight into topics like ethnicity, regionality and contact, no general overview has been undertaken since the 1950s. This AHRC award is for a new study of the origins, elaboration and significance of the penannular brooch form in Britain from its Iron Age origins to the early post-Roman centuries, through fresh analysis of their typological development in an insular and continental setting, and of the site and landscape context of individual finds and different brooch types. The project will draw on data recorded by the PAS and from published and grey literature sites and will make full use of the extensive British Museum collections.

The successful applicant will have a relevant first degree and/or postgraduate qualification. He/she will receive training in the handling, analysis and interpretation of material culture, and in Iron Age to early medieval archaeology. The outcome, after 3 years, will be a PhD from the University of Leicester. The start date is October 2010.

The AHRC maintenance award will be enhanced by an additional 1000 per year and the British Museum will provide up to 500 a year towards the costs and expenses (such as travel and subsistence) incurred by the student as a direct result of working at the Museum for their studies. The University of Leicester will provide desk space in a dedicated postgraduate room, normal IT facilities and a library with good coverage of British and European archaeology. The British Museum will offer the student office and working space with access to other research resources as required. The post-holder will be a temporary member of the British Museum staff and will receive a staff pass and full access to facilities available to British Museum staff, including its excellent libraries.

For further particulars, please visit http://www2.le.ac.uk/departments/gradschool/finance/funding/scholarships/cda-archaeology. Informal enquiries may be made to Professor Colin Haselgrove ([log in to unmask]). The closing date for applications is **Friday 28 May 2010**. It is anticipated that interviews will be held in Leicester on Friday 11 June 2010.
