Stay home and stay entertained!


I've got a couple of little fun things to keep you occupied - how do you fancy a  talk on my new book, Secret Britain, or some live archaeology storytelling ?

There might even be some hybrid - half live, half virtual events this summer! i think that means that some of the audience will be dialling in for the livestream. Either that, or I'm expected to become bionic by June...

Details below...

Secret Britain: Flag Fen lectures


Thursday 20th May 2021

7pm - 8.30pm


Tickets - FREE! Copies of my book with a signed bookplate are also available.


Join for a free talk hosted by the incredible Flag Fen Archaeology Park. We'll delve into the mysterious activities of people living in Somerset during the Ice Age, why someone buried a pair of fortune telling spoons in a hillfort in Wales 2,000 years ago, and the intriguing boats discovered under a collapsed village near Flag Fen itself....the fenland version of Pompeii, perhaps?!





Chalke Valley History Festival: Digging for History

Saturday 26th June 2021
2pm - 3pm

I'll be joining Alex Langlands and Neil Oliver for an hour of celebration of the the importance of arcaheology for telling our stories - not just those stories from before people started to write things down, but also the stories that didn't get written down, or got written down wrong. From landscape history, to tales of everyday life, to the secret details revealed my modern archaeological science, this is actually going to be a live and in person event, part of a wonderfully diverse history festival programmed to entertain the whole family.
