Thursday, Septeber 26th, 19.30 - Professor Ronald HuttonBritain's Pagan Heritage





Glimpses into the distant past are coming thick and fast, along with new theories about what went on at Stonehenge – or the probably grizzly fate of Lindow Man, and other humans whose well-preserved bodies have been found buried in bogs. 

What are we to make of these dramatic discoveries? 

To help us sift through the morass of competing ideas Ronald Hutton, Professor of History at Bristol University and widely respected broadcaster, will be addressing Clevedon and District Archaeological Society on Britain’s Pagan Heritage on Thursday 26 September at 7.30pm at St Andrews Church Centre, Church Close, Clevedon BS21 7UE. 

If you want to find out from a real expert about what our ancestors got up to come along.  Visitors are welcome to attend for £3 – or for only £15 join one of the area’s oldest societies for the whole of our fascinating season of six meetings plus next summer’s field trips!
