On Thursday 26th February we welcome Ruth Nugent to MAS.  Ruth will be presenting her talk ‘Dead at Chester Cathedral: The Burials and Commemorations at the Cathedral’.

As a mature student, Ruth received a first-class, undergraduate degree in Archaeology from Chester in 2010 and received the Blue Coat Archaeology and Heritage award as valedictorian, and the Society for Medieval Archaeology’s John Hurst prize for the ‘most original contribution to medieval archaeology by an undergraduate dissertation’.
