Lectures and talks

Illustrated on-line talks replace face-to-face lectures until the epidemic restrictions permit

The society’s programme of talks on local history and archaeology has moved on-line since the Covid-19 lockdown started in March. Since then we have run one on-line conference of 200 people – on the latest discoveries made by the HS2 Archaeology teams – and four Saturday afternoon illustrated talks, all viewable from your own living room,

These on-line talks are easy to access. literally click-to-view, using Zoom, which has become a standard for many societies – and separated families – across the country during the epidemic.
