Kenneth Marks: Jewish Archaeology
Chair: Charles Corman
Jews were readmitted to Britain by Cromwell in 1656. In just over a century their number grew from a mere handful of families to 60,000 residents, who mostly lived in London. Kenneth Marks explores the urban topography of Anglo-Jewry before the mass immigration of the late 19th century and offers a fascinating portrayal of a community at its inception. Lawyer Charles Corman will be discussing Jewish archaeology with Kenneth Marks.
Kenneth Marks was a businessman before he came to the formal study of archaeology. Following many years of fieldwork in Israel’s Caesarea Maritima, he undertook research at UCL’s Institute of Archaeology.
Charles Corman is a corporate and charity lawyer, the trustee of various private and charitable trusts, including, until recently, the Jewish Book Council. He was made a partner for Dechert in 1961, where he remains a consultant.
