Programme 2021: Key events
Prehistory Research Section events:
Saturday 27th March 2pm
YAHS Prehistory Research Section talk & AGM for members. To be presented via Zoom.
Fraser Brown, Project Manager, Oxford North, will present: New Mesolithic Discoveries from the North: Changing Views on Hunter/ Gatherer Lifestyles and the Arrival of Farming
Fraser has been involved in excavating and interpreting several important Mesolithic and Neolithic sites. These include the unexpectedly rich discoveries from excavations at Ronaldsway airport on the Isle of Man, from a river-side site on the Carlisle Northern Bypass and, most recently, from a site near Blackpool, which has proved to be ‘truly remarkable’. His findings are likely to challenge established theories about the Mesolithic and the transition to the Neolithic. Registration information available in early March.
