Visit to the British Museum Saturday November 3rd 2007

There will be a visit to the British Museum to see the conserved Senuna hoard in its own display case in the recently re-designed Romano-British Gallery on Saturday November 3rd. We are planning to meet in the Great Court at the café at the far end on the left at 11 am. Gil Burleigh will, if possible, give us a short talk about the artefacts. This depends very much on how many of us are there and how easy/difficult it will be to do so in a public gallery. Any further questions then please e-mail Mick James.

Week of the 30th – 7th October

Sunday September 30th. Our Chairman Paul Palmer led a 10 mile walk from Hexton (near Hitchin) to Wilbury, Letchworth G.C along the Icknield Way. During the walk, Paul expounded upon the significance of this ancient trackway and we enjoyed a perfect ‘Indian Summer’-like day.

Wednesday October 3rd, Alison Dickens (Cambridge Archaeology Unit) gave an excellent lecture to the Society on the Subject of ‘The Excavations of the old Robert Sayle site in Cambridge’. This was our first lecture at the Garden Gallery in Plinston Hall, where we were warmly received.

Saturday October 6th. The NHAS were represented at Volunteers Fair this weekend held in Plinston Hall. We had productive conversations revolving around the Society and welcomed several new members as a result of this event.
