Researcher:Meg Boulton Meg is a research associate at the University of York. She has a background in Fine Art but turned to Art History for her postgraduate studies. Her PhD, at the University of York, was on the conceptualisation of sacred space in Anglo-Saxon Northumbria from the 6th-9th century. Her chosen object, the Last Judgment ivory, explicates the collapse of time and the end of all things for its viewer though an interplay of eschatology, iconography and visual innovation that defies its tiny scale and material identity as a finite thing.
