Below are details for some of the local archaeological and historical societies in our region:


Acropolis Education

Billy F. K. Howorth, Archaeologist & Lecturer.
I offer a wide range of sessions throughout the North-West including talks and lectures to local groups, societies and schools, in addition to my guided walks and guided day trips. I also teach history and archaeology courses at various venues throughout the North-West, as well as activity sessions and education sessions for children. All my sessions are adaptable for any age group or ability and I am able to tailor my sessions or write them on specific subjects by request.
