Rocks, Holes & Pots of Gold
An evening with Britain's Roman and Ancient treasures
12th April, 7pm, Lytham St Annes Classical Association

Thousands of artefacts are discovered in the British Isles every year. Some of them earn their finders enormous sums of money, but most are priceless in a different way, telling the stories of our ancestors’ lives, and revealing the secrets and beliefs of the folk who lived here before us. Join me at the Classical Association to share some of my favourite tales, revealing the exciting, intriguing and sometimes ridiculous stories behind Roman and ancient finds both famous and forgotten.

Explorers, Anthropologists & Tourists: What’s the difference?

13th April, 7pm drinks for 7.30pm start, Blencathra Centre, Threlkeld, Cumbria

Why do we travel to other cultures? Who, if anyone, gives permission? Are only some reasons for travel valid? And once you’re there, what understanding do you hope to achieve? Big questions at the heart of exploration, along with tales of glory and misadventure from my own experience.


Tickets £5 / £8, with all proceeds to the Mountain Heritage Trust
