As the Blick Mead dig gets underway for yet another year and we all wait with anticipation at what wonders might arise this year, we have been serenaded by the first of the Blick Mead lectures.
The eloquent Professor Graeme Davis kicked off the lectures on Friday evening with a truly ground breaking talk on recreating the languages of our ancient ancestors, followed on Saturday night by Ron Edwards who had come all the way from Florida especially to give his very illuminating talk on the alignment of monuments.
The lectures continue on Monday 8th October where guests will be served a delicious treat of Mesolithic cuisine followed by a talk by Nettie Baskcomb-Brown who will be explaining her MA dissertation. Nettie, having run amateur operatic groups and is a fabulous story writer, is sure to bring a wonderful energy and flare to the proceedings.
Future talks are planned for Saturday 13th October, a talk by David Saunders on Cursus Monumnets and then on Monday 15th October David Jacques will be explaining what has been found at the Blick Mead dig this year.
All talks will take place at the Amesbury History Centre and are £6 each to attend.
