a fundraising talk for Butser Ancient Farm
Thursday 19th November 2020, 7-8pm
I'm delighted to be able to support the fantastic archaeology research site Butser Ancient Farm with this fundraising talk. All proceeds from the talk tickets and book sales will go to Butser, to help them continue their important work. If you've never been to Butser, do go if you get the chance. On a small site in the South Downs National Park in Hampshire, they've got experimental buildings from the Stone, Bronze, and Iron Ages, Roman times and Saxon times. They're all based on exact measurements from real archaeological excavations, which means this is living experimental archaeology. It helps us work out how rooves work, how long thatch lasts, what techniques work best and how contemporary tools helped people do their jobs. Add in some awesome ancient breed animals and crops, a team of expert volunteers and staff and lots of hands-on experiences for visitors and you're on to a winner. 2020 has been tough for many heritage organisations, this event will help Butser gather much needed funds to keep going!
Tickets are £6 for the talk only (via Zoom) or £20 for a signed book and talk
Secret Histories: Stories for a Winter's Night
Sunday 27th December 2020
6pm - 8pm
It's going to be a strange end to a strange year...so why not treat yourself (and the family) to a cosy evening of online storytelling, drawing on the depths of wisdom and weirdness of the ancestors. From Moon temples to Yule feasts, ancient myths and modern discoveries, Jason and Mary-Ann will weave together their signature blend of archaeological fact and original storytelling.
Suitable for the whole family (but in no way just for kids)
