Archaeology and Ale is our free monthly archaeology talk, held upstairs in the Red Deer pub on Pitt Street in Sheffield. Every month we invite guest speakers from all walks of archaeology to talk about what they’ve been up to and how you can get involved. These are fun, informal talks about all kinds of archaeology, not just academic stuff – everyone is welcome.
You can listen to our previous talks thanks to the Archaeology Podcast Network – the talk is recorded live every month and syndicated worldwide thanks to the APN. Click the “Free Pub Talks!
