posted 22 Jan 2013, 13:27 by Paul Brayford   [ updated 1 Feb 2016, 14:49 ]
Galtres Centre, Easingwold 

FRIDAY 8 FEBRUARY 7.30PM 

Take a virtual walk through history in this lively and richly illustrated talk as Gillian Hovell leads you through the history of our islands as seen from the monuments and ruins that are all around us. Explore Britain’s national and local sites and discover that archaeology is everywhere and for everyone as she exposes the stories behind the landscapes we live and work and move in. You’ll never look at an empty field, ancient ruin or old buildings in the same way again …

Gillian is an author, historian, archaeologist and public speaker of considerable experience and astonishing range – books, articles, leader of two community archaeology projects in Yorkshire, teacher of Latin to adults, presenter of heritage films, guide on archaeological tours, and more. She worked in BBC Television before ‘escaping the South’ and moving to Yorkshire.

Adults £8,  16 & under £5
