Memorial Service at Durham Cathedral on the 14th of July to commemorate the life, work and achievements of Professor Dame Rosemary Cramp.
Dear friends and colleagues,
We invite you to a Memorial Service at Durham Cathedral on the 14th of July to commemorate the life, work and achievements of Professor Dame Rosemary Cramp.
Rosemary dedicated her career at Durham University to creating an exceptional Department of Archaeology as well as giving great service to the University and to St. Mary’s College. More broadly Rosemary led and contributed to many international, national and regional organisations and committees, as Trustee of the British Museum 1978-1999, President of the Society of Antiquaries of London 2001-2004, Commissioner for the Ancient and Historical Monuments of Scotland, and the Historic Buildings and Monuments Commission for England, among many other roles. As the first female Professor at Durham University and Head of the Department of Archaeology for 19 years, she also nurtured and supported innumerable students to succeed and develop their careers in archaeology and beyond.
The Department of Archaeology invites you to this service to celebrate these many achievements, but also Rosemary’s passion and determination, her rich intellectual contribution and generosity to her friends and all those who studied and worked with her.
The service will take place in Durham Cathedral at 5.30 pm and will be followed by refreshments in the Cloister.
Information on the event and an invitation to contribute to the Memorial Page and to the Rosemary Cramp Fund can be found via the following the links and below. Please do share the information on the Memorial Service with others.
