We will learn about Dorset’s deeper past, the people and their material culture, from the last ice age to the beginnings of the Wessex kingdom.

This talk is about the places, landscape and archaeology of Dorset and describes the main archaeological sites dating from 10,000 BC, to the Romanisation of Britain and into the Anglo-Saxon period. We will look at Stone Age sites on windswept ridges, cemeteries consisting of Bronze Age round barrows, the massive ramparts of Iron Age hill forts, Roman roads, farmsteads and villas. No matter how faint, the mark of past human communities in our landscape has a tale to tell.

Chris Tripp is the Community Archaeologist for Dorset and has extensive knowledge of Dorset Archaeology. He has also worked on extensive digs in London.

Cost:   Members £3.00;   Non-NTSDA members £4.00.
