Crookham and Branxton during WWI: 14th November

Till Valley Archaeological Society.
The group will be welcoming either Graeme Young or Paul Gethin to TillVAS on Wednesday, 4th November at 7.30pm in Crookham Village Hall.
Both archaeologists have been working on the excavations at Bradford Kaims.
The Bamburgh Research Project supported by the Heritage Lottery Fund and English Heritage have been working with the local community (including some TillVAS members) and universities to investigate a truly remarkable ancient wetlands site which is located just a few miles from Bamburgh. The area still floods in wet weather and was once a peat filled lake. Peat has a wonderful property of preserving the kind of organic remains that do not survive on dry sites. Hence this is a particularly fascinating area and the talk promises to be of great interest.
Come along and find out how people lived 6,000 years ago at Bradford Kaims!
