Worthing Museum presents the Autumn Lecture Series.

Our hugely popular lecture series returns on Thursday evenings this October to December.

An intimate season of talks with our Archaeology Curator James Sainsbury and guest speakers. Explore a wide range of subjects from Sussex in the Stone and Bronze ages, Worthing at War 1939-1945 and Highdown & Saxon Sussex. This year due to high demand we have the return of A Victorian Naval Odyssey: John Palmer and his unique log book revealed, as well as The Story of Cissbury Ring. Plus brand new talks on topics such as Roman Worthing & Surrounds and Harry Peulevé: Worthing’s War-time Spy.

The Story of Cissbury Ring

Join our archaeologist James for a lecture revealing the historical secrets of mighty Cissbury Ring. From Stone Age flint mining to Iron Age ramparts and World War 2 defences, Cissbury has fascinated locals and visitors alike for centuries. This talk will look at the archaeology of the site as well as the pioneering archaeologists who were responsible for innovative approaches to the discipline.

Ticket price includes a glass of wine or tea/coffee.
