Archaeology

Activity

This group meets monthly to learn more about the physical remains of the world’s past civilisations, especially those which members might have visited on holiday, such as Petra, Hadrian's Wall, Macchu Picchu or Pompeii. We have also studied wider themes such as the origins of man, the beginnings of metal -working, the Roman world, industrial archaeology and so on.

Meetings generally take the form of illustrated talks by the group leader, herself an archaeologist, as well as occasional outside speakers. An annual feature is a Members’ Day where short talks on a variety of subjects are given by group members. Visits to English sites and special exhibitions are arranged.
