The great prehistoric monuments of Avebury have captured the public imagination for centuries. But despite the best efforts of generations of antiquaries and archaeologists we know surprisingly little about the daily lives of the people who created and used them. Over the last few years the Between the Monuments project has begun to remedy this.
I’m delighted to say that I’ve been invited to give this year’s Avebury Society lecture on Wednesday 15 April at 7:30pm in the Kennet Valley Hall, Lockeridge (doors open at 7:00pm). I’ll be revealing how the discoveries made by the project, together with others from the wider Neolithic world, are rewriting our ideas about life among the monuments.
