  • Description

Worthing Museum presents the Autumn Lecture Series.

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.

Sussex and the Great War: Homefront & Frontline
The First World War affected all who lived through those terrible years and the people of Sussex were no different. This talk will look at both the military and social aspects of the war, covering the training of soldiers on the local Downs, the battles fought by the Royal Sussex Regiment and the problems on the Home Front. There will be an extensive object handling session after this lecture.

General on-sale Friday 27 August, 12pm
