2nd March 2020:

Gill Hey, Oxford Archaeology's CEO, will shed new light on ancient landscapes, as she delivers the Tom Hassall Lecture for 2020 on the prehistory of the Upper Thames Valley

In 1995 Richard Bradley delivered the Tom Hassall Lecture on the 'Earlier Prehistory of the Oxford Region', but by the time Volume 1 of Thames Through Time was completed fifteen years later, new discoveries had shifted and enhanced our understanding of the period. In the same way, ten years further on again, new discoveries and the analyses of earlier excavations have made important contributions to our knowledge of life in the valley between 4,000 and 2,000 BC.

This lecture, which will be held on 10th March at 5.30pm at Rewley House in Oxford, will explore this new evidence and the extent to which it has changed our interpretation of the Neolithic and early Bronze Age of the Upper Thames.

The lecture, organised by the Oxfordshire Architectural and Archaeological Society, is free and open to everyone. Click here for more details.
