News and updates from ENCOUNTER
Dr. Jonathan Finch as a visiting researcher at Gammel Estrup, Denmark
Dr. Finch is a Reader in Historical Archaeology at the Department of Archaeology at the University of York in the UK. His primary research interest is the interpretation of historic landscapes and he specialises in estate landscapes as cultural environments. He has also carried out research into the international connections in the past in British and colonial cultural landscapes.
Jonathan Finch is a member of the ENCOUNTER steering group and during his visit in Denmark he collaborated with the team at the Danish Research Centre for Manorial Studies on developing a joint EU application with other members of the ENCOUNTER network.
In the spring of 2017 Jonathan Finch will return to the Danish Research Centre for Manorial Studies and complete the second part of his stay as a visiting researcher. The visits were made possible by a grant from the Danish Ministry of Culture and will hopefully contribute to strengthening the ENCOUNTER network and developing the international collaboration on estates and country houses.
