A reminder of this year's annual London Archaeologist lecture next week,
Tuesday 22nd May. It's free, open to all and this year offers a rare
chance to hear about important recent discoveries at one of the nation's
most iconic sites: Westminster Abbey.
Presented by Warwick Rodwell, pioneer of church archaeology in the 1960s
and '70s, acknowledged authority and Consultant Archaeologist to the
Abbey since 2004, the lecture covers The Archaeology of a Royal
Peculiar: new light on Westminster Abbey and its furnishings.
Details of significant results from programmes of excavation,
non-invasive investigation, restoration and conservation across the
Abbey precincts will be discussed, from a Saxon door and walls to
medieval tombs and Tudor towers.
Please do spread the word to your colleagues, local societies, museums,
libraries and friends - the lecture is free and all are welcome.
You're also welcome to come to our wine reception at 6.30pm. The
reception is followed at 7pm by a short AGM and the Annual Lecture. We'd
appreciate an RSVP by email for the reception so we can be sure to
provide enough wine:
