Archaeology & Ale

Our monthly lecture series and podcast

Usually our talks are held upstairs in The Red Deer Pub but due to the COVID-19 situation will be help online via Google Meets (details on our Facebook page)

On the last Thursday of every month, starting at 6pm, we invite guest speakers from all walks of archaeology to talk about things that we think are interesting. These fun, informal, and – hopefully – educational talks cover all time periods and aspects of archaeology and history. Everyone is welcome and the lectures are free to attend. So bring your dads, grannies, new-borns, first dates and archaeology-hating housemates – and be prepared to think and drink!
