Local Archaeology Talk At The Church 8th February

WEDNESDAY 8 FEBRUARY 7.30 pm in St Giles's Church, Bielby

An illustrated talk about our local archaeology:
''Exploring an Ancient Landscape - the Foulness Valley''

Peter is the expert on the archaeology of our district. The River Foulness starts in the fields between Bielby, Everingham and Harswell, flowing down to the Humber.

Peter discovered the 2,500 year-old logboat near Holme OSM and excavated the Roman remains under Hayton village. Some of the woodwork found there was the best crafted ever discovered in the former Roman Empire.

Only 50 tickets available (small church!), so book early to avoid disappointment
