Stories from the Dark Earth: Meet the Ancestors - Revisited

by Julian Richards.  Sat 10 Nov.  SOLD OUT

Julian will be updating some of the fascinating stories from his popular Meet the Ancestors TV Series.  He will discuss what has happened to the site and the discoveries over the last 10-12 years (yes it’s that long since the original series) as well as investigating how our perceptions of those periods have changed in this time.  So there a bigger picture to be painted rather than just the updated stories of the individual sites.

Julian says "It has been huge fun, travelling from Orkney to East Anglia, Yorkshire and the Cotswolds as well as closer to home in Dorset and Winchester.  I have enjoyed meeting up with the archaeologists and specialists that we worked with before, comparing how their work has changed and how much older we all look!"
Cost £6 (£3.50 for WANHS members).  Starts 2.30pm.
Please note:  advance bookings may be cancelled 14 days before the lecture if payment has not been received.
