Archaeology & Ale lecture and podcast series

Archaeology & Ale is a monthly lecture series, held upstairs in The Red Deer pub, Pitt Street, Sheffield.

On the last Thursday of every month, starting at 6p.m., we invite guest speakers from all walks of archaeology to talk about things that we think are interesting. Over recent months we’ve gone from castles to caves and from Medieval halls to Neanderthals, and have heard from the archaeology of the ancient past all the way to the archaeology of the New Age.

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, newborns, first dates and archaeology-hating housemates – and be prepared to think and drink!

If you have any ideas for talks or speakers you would like us to book – or if you are an archaeology enthusiast and would like to give an A&A talk yourself – get in touch at

Most of our talks are recorded for upload onto the Archaeology Podcast Network. You can liste to previous talks thanks to the APN, who syndicate our talk worldwide. Click the link below for our APN page and to see previous episodes.
