At 7 pm we hold our Annual General Meeting. All members are invited to attend and the Agenda will be made available to all prior to the event.
At 7.30 pm we are delighted to welcome friend of ERAS, Dr Melanie Giles. Perhaps better known for her work on Iron Age East Yorkshire, Mel’s book Bog Bodies. Face to Face with the Past won the Book of the Year in the 2022 Current Archaeology Awards. As well as reviewing more familiar bog bodies from Europe, such as Tollund Man, Mel’s recent work has involved what has been described as a “ground breaking cold-case forensic study of Worsley Man, Manchester Museum’s ‘bog head’. According to a recent review, the book “offers a welcome fresh perspective on British bog bodies … As well as being richly detailed, the book is beautifully written, with many memorable and evocative passages”. Mel’s talk is one not to be missed!
Entry to Melanie's lecture is free to ERAS members and £2 for guests. We very much look forward to meeting our members and supporters at the University but understand that on some occasions it can be difficult to attend in person. We therefore also stream live to ERAS members via a digital link received via email prior to the presentation.
