Bristol and Avon Archaeological Society

Bristol City Museum on-line lectures

On Wednesday October 14, 2020
Dr. Cat Jarman

Bristol City Museum are hosting a series of on-line talks linked with Bristol & Avon Archaeological Society; Bath & Counties Archaeological Society and Bristol & Gloucester Archaeological Society. The first talk explores Dr Cat Jarman’s excavations in Repton, Derbyshire. The dig uncovered evidence of the notorious Viking Great Army’s winter camp along with Scandinavian graves, and a mound covering the remains of nearly 300 people and Viking weapons.  At first it seemed the mass burial contained the Viking army dead – but radiocarbon dates suggested many of them died long before the 9th century.

The first Archaeology Online lecture is on 14th October at 7.30pm. Tickets are FREE, just register to book your place:
