30/01/2018 Vincent Gaffney. 2001 Archaeological sites on the Dalmation Islands. The central Dalmatian islands form an archipelago that has acted as a crossroads between the civilisations of Greece and Rome and, through the great Dinaric passes, into the heart of the Balkans. Not surprisingly, given such a strategic position, Greeks, Romans, Venetians and Turks have sought or fought to possess these islands - and all have their mark in the dramatic archaeology of the region. This talk introduces the archaeology and history of the islands and the vagaries of working through the war and political intrigue of post-Yugoslav Croatia.
27/02/2018 Nick Allsopp. Romans in Pattingham.
Carole Griffith's Archaeology for Schools classes.

We had a great trip to the Lapworth Museum of Geology. Jon Clatworthy (Director) gave us a fantastic tour for which we are most grateful.

At least you meet their dinosaur when you enter (unlike the British Museum!)

Here is a good time line which puts things into perspective.

There are some lovely small precambrian creatures, unfortunately now extinct.

Some lovely larger creatures having lunch!
