September Meeting 2011 – change of speaker

In a previous post, the Winter lecture programme for 2011-12 was announced.  We have had to make a late change to the programme – the speaker on 7th September at 7.30pm will now be Peter Knight.  The title of his talk is ‘West Kennet Long Barrow: Landscape, Shamans and the Cosmos’, which is also the title of Peter`s recently published new book.

The talk will cover the excavations at the monument, the surrounding sites (such as Silbury Hill), astronomical alignments and much else. Peter is known more as an alternative researcher, but in this instance his work is more pure archaeology.

As usual, the lecture will take place at 7.30pm in the Ann Rose Hall of the Greyfriars Community Centre in Ringwood.
