  • 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.

The Story of Highdown Hill
Join our archaeologist James for a lecture revealing the fascinating history of Highdown Hill. From Bronze Age enclosure and Iron Age fort through to Roman residence and Anglo-Saxon cemetery this talk will take an in-depth look at one of Worthing’s most famous hills. New and exciting research will be discussed during this lecture, including future plans for further study that could challenge the established history of the site forever. There will be an object handling session after this lecture.
