CBA North News
CBA North and the region are full of archaeological busy.
We are in the process of setting up things for 2018, but hope to send out summaries of things that have happened in 2017 later this month as well. If you would like to contribute something, such as to publicise your own group’s events of this year or to come, in our emails to our members and/or for our Events website events, please feel free to send us those details to firstname.lastname@example.org.

Hadrian’s Wall: an archaeological site or an artistic muse?
Here is the poster and some details of one of those events kindly provided by Josie McChrystal, Secretary of the Border Archaeological Society.
This Christmas miscellany explores Hadrian’s Wall through poetry, films, cartoons, music and literature, discovering how each generation sees the Wall in their own way. Using archives and her personal involvement in the arts first as Director of Archaeological Museums for Newcastle University and then as Director of its Centre for Interdisciplinary Artefact Studies, Lindsay Allason-Jones will introduce you to some familiar, some unusual and some distinctly odd material, and reveal aspects of the Wall which may surprise you.
The lecture will take place at Berwick Parish (Holy Trinity) Church Hall, off The Parade, Berwick TD15 1DF, commencing at 7.30pm. It is free for BAS members but there is a charge of £2 for visitors.
The latest copy of The Bulletin will be available on the evening, together with the opportunity to renew your BAS membership.
