The Vikings are coming!

This week the Vikings are coming to the CBA North region!

There are two events on Vikings this week across the CBA North region.

On Wednesday our group member the Till Valley Archaeological Society (TillVAS) will be hearing Kristian Pedersen speak on “Vikings in the North Atlantic” at Crookham Village Hall in Northumberland.

On the following day there is a Newcastle University Archaeology Department Seminar when Julie Lund will be speak on “Relating to Pasts and Creating Places of Commemoration in Viking Age Scandinavia” in the Armstrong Building of Newcastle University, Newcastle upon Tyne. Further details of that will follow this post in a minute or two.

In the meantime the Northumberland Archaeological Group (NAG) – the newest group member of CBA North – will be also having their March lecture on Wednesday night as well. This will be on something totally different to the Vikings when Marco Romeo Pitone will be talking about “Experimental Archaeometallurgy in Early-Middle Bronze Age Cyprus” in their lecture at the Newcastle Arts Centre, on Westgate Road, Newcastle upon Tyne.

Over to you to take your choice,
