Suitable for Ages 16+
Our hugely popular lecture series returns on Thursday evenings this October & November. An intimate season of talks with our archaeology curator James Sainsbury and guest speakers. Explore a wide range of subjects from Palaeolithic mega-floods and Stone Age religion to the stories of famous local landmarks, Norman invaders and World War I. This year we’ll also have two special lectures looking at fascinating elements of our museum collections – a newly discovered Victorian naval journal and our extensive, hidden medals collection. Ticket price includes a glass of wine or tea/coffee.
Britain: An Island Nation
Guest speaker Bob Turner will take us on a journey into deep prehistory. We will look at how Britain became an island thousands of years ago, the lost landscapes that existed in the Channel and how this affected the human groups living in the area.
