Presented by Dr Chris Robinson, Archaeological Officer with Nottinghamshire County Councils Conservation Team.
The Late Prehistoric period was perhaps the most revolutionary period in British history. It was during this time that British society developed from one of small isolated rural communities to one based around large tribal regions with urban centres of power and industry.
Today, monuments that survive from this period continue to dominate the British landscape. One of the few exceptions to this, however, is Nottinghamshire. Often jokingly referred to as a ‘boring flat county’ this talk will uncover the truth and show that there is far more to Nottinghamshire’s Late Prehistoric archaeology than meets the eye.
After the talk there will be the opportunity to handle Bronze Age and Iron Age material in the Museum.
Archaeology NOW is a series of FREE talks and handling sessions that focuses on current archaeological work.
These talks allow professional archaeologists, related specialists and community groups to share their exciting work with us as it is happening and include regional, national and international projects
Talks are at 1pm in the Djanogly Theatre, please book your place in advance at the Box Office on 0115 846 7777.
