Archaeology Lectures

The society organsises a series of lectures over the winter season. These are normally focused on topics of local interest and are given by archaeology professionals or by local people with specialist knowledge. The lectures last approximately 1 hour (depending on the topic) and are followed by a question and answer session.

Members of the society have free access to these meetings but members of the public are also welcome on payment of a small charge.

Our meetings take place on the second floor of Marriott's Warehouse which can be reached by stairs or lift. The meeting room is large and well-equipt with an overhead project and sound facilities. The ground floor of the building has a very nice restaurent and you can buy light refreshments, including hot drinks, from the bar there.
