A free lecture at Bournemouth University (BU) will explore cross-channel relations between Britain and France during the Neolithic and early Bronze Age.
It is the second annual Pitt Rivers Lecture, which celebrate the achievements of General Pitt Rivers - a distinguished Dorset-based archaeologist and anthropologist who is considered to be the father of scientific archaeology.
Called Long Before Brexit: reflections on cross Channel connections between the fifth and the second millennia BC, the talk is held in association with the Prehistoric Society and will be given by Dr Alison Sheridan.
Dr Sheridan is Principal Archaeological Research Curator in the Department of Scottish History and Archaeology, National Museums Scotland.
Professor Tim Darvill, Professor of Archaeology at BU, said: “It is a great pleasure to welcome Dr Alison Sheridan from National Museums Scotland as our lecturer this year. Her interest in cross-channel contacts during prehistoric times provides a timely reminder of the great antiquity of connections between Britain and France.”
The lecture takes place in the Fusion Building, on BU’s Talbot Campus, on Tuesday 30 October.
It starts at 7pm, with archaeological displays on show from 6.30pm. The event is free and open to the public and refreshments will be available.
