lunchtime talk

This is a free event but please book your place in advance by calling the Box Office on 0115 846 7777. 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 isolate 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 Nottinghamshire's Late Prehistoric archaeology than meets the eye. This talk is given by Dr Chris Robinson, Archaeological Officer with Nottinghamshire County Councils Conservation Team. After the talk there will be the opportunity to handle Bronze Age and Iron Age material in the Museum.
