Between Avebury and Stonehenge. The Neolithic monuments of the Pewsey Vale


Friday 9 November 2018, 1.00PM to 14:00

Speaker(s): Jim Leary

This lecture will give an overview of recent archaeological investigations in the Vale of Pewsey in Wiltshire. These excavations focus on Marden henge - the largest henge in the country, as well as other nearby monuments, such as the Wilsford henge and Cat's Brain long barrow. This collaborative research programme links the Stonehenge landscape to the south with Avebury to the north, and the significance of this important region and the mega-monuments within it will be discussed.

Location: The Philip Rahtz Lecture Theatre (K/133), King's Manor

Admission: This is part of the York Seminar series and is free to attend and open to all.
