Prof Dawn Hadley

I trained as an historian in the School of History at the University of Birmingham, and having taught medieval history at the Universities of Birmingham and Leeds, I came to Sheffield in 1996 to teach Anglo-Saxon and medieval archaeology, and am now Head of Department. My research interests now include: the society and culture of Anglo-Saxon and medieval England; the impact of the Vikings on Britain; the construction of gender, especially masculinity, in Anglo-Saxon and medieval England; funerary archaeology; the antiquarian Thomas Bateman (1821-61); the Tudor hunting lodge and working-class community at Sheffield Manor Lodge; the archaeology of nineteenth-century working-class communities; the archaeology of childhood.
