At 7pm on Tuesday 11th May we will welcome Professor Peter Rowley-Conwy as our speaker. Now Professor Emeritus in Archaeology from Durham University, Professor Rowley-Conwy will speak about Neolithic farming. He says:
"Recent work both in ‘conventional’ archaeology and new scientific techniques have changed our understanding of what Britain's earliest farming was like. Our earliest farmers were using unexpectedly intensive and sophisticated methods, showing that they were by no means ‘primitive,’ as used sometimes to be assumed, but on the contrary knew exactly what they were doing."
