Fairgrounds for the Dead: the prehistory of the Ashwell area

21 June @ 1:00 pm - 2:00 pm

Were the people who lived in North Hertfordshire before the Roman conquest faceless, boring people whose lives (and deaths) are beyond our understanding?

Archaeologist and museum curator Keith Fitzpatrick-Matthews explores what we know about a fascinating prehistoric landscape between Baldock, Ashwell and Royston and how we can bring its inhabitants to life. Discover more about the monuments hidden under fields, the finds that were the possessions of prehistoric people and how they celebrated and remembered their dead.

Join us for a lunchtime talk by Keith at North Hertfordshire Museum.

Includes a free cup of tea or coffee.

Bring your sandwiches with you!

Buy through Eventbrite or drop into Hitchin Town Hall reception to pay cash.
