Good Morning Everyone,
This is just a quick email to say thank you to everyone who has already registered with Teesside Archaeological Society for this year. We very much appreciate it and thank you for everyone who attended the last lecture. We had 51 people come along!
The next lecture will take place on the 19th April. It is NOT the last Tuesday of the month this time, due to the library being used for other purposes.
‘Nevern Castle in Pembrokeshire’ by Dr. Chris Caple
Dr. Chris Caple graduated from the University of Wales, College of Cardiff, with a BSc in Archaeological Conservation. In addition to being a Fellow of Antiquaries, and Director of the postgraduate programme in artefact conservation in Durham University Department of Archaeology, he has a long-term research interest in Welsh castles. This talk will concentrate on the Welsh castle he has been most recently involved with in excavating: Nevern Castle in Pembrokeshire, where excavations began in 2008 and will continue to 2018. Findings so far of this well-preserved 12th Century castle, built of stone mortared with clay, include a threshold containing hidden apotropaic symbols.
