As part of the research programme, the candidate will acquire complementary knowledge in the field (mainly relating to Anglo-Saxon architecture
), will be trained in new techniques (OSL, laser scanning, GIS/informatics and LiDAR) and will interact with researchers in the host organisation who have mutually complementary research expertise.
Again exhibiting architectural ideals evidenced in Anglo-Saxon architecture, Heorot, like many buildings of heroic significance in Old English verse, is also described as rounded or arched, (16) most frequently with the term 'geap', which in Beowulf has connotations of both height and roundness: curved, vaulted, or spacious.
(26) In similar fashion, the 'image vocabulary' of Anglo-Saxon architecture includes countless features that have acquired radically different meanings today from those in Anglo-Saxon times, yet some elements of this visual language manifest remarkable stability.
The doors are also made of timber, and, like many doors in actual Anglo-Saxon architecture, these have high arched frames.
