Armchair Archaeology

stone carving of three people

At the start of 2023, the group decided to start chronologically with the earliest evidence for humans in the British Isles, and work our way forwards.

We've just got as far as the British Iron Age by June, with lots of interesting discussions along the way concerning belief ,ethnicity and of course, lots of lovely archaeology.

Join the group and help choose what we will look at as we move into 2024.
