lithics-holding

Over the next 12 months we intend to run another selection of varied and exciting lithic-related events, which are open to all members. Some of these are still in the early stages of being organised so please keep checkin back for the latest news.

Information will also be circulated nearer the time of each event so could we ask you to make sure that we have your up-to-date email address (you can update your details in the members area). Opportunities to visit sites can come up at very short notice, precluding a paper mailing.

Feel free to contact the email hidden; JavaScript is required or the Events Secretary, (email hidden; JavaScript is required) if you are organising an event which fellow members would be interested in attending – museum or site visits, for instance. We can help you publicise your event to the membership, and provide organisational support.

We would particularly like to support Open Trench events throughout the year, when Society members can visit sites under excavation.

Society knappers welcomed at Butser throughout this year !

Butser Ancient Farm are inviting knappers from the Society to come along at weekends from April onwards.

This will be an opportunity for you to break flint in the lovely surroundings of the farm – and meet other knappers as well as interested members of the public.

You won’t need to instruct, but visitors would like to see you working with flint and will no doubt have lots of questions to ask. It is intended that these will be informal gatherings, so just come along and enjoy yourself!

Please contact email hidden; JavaScript is required to let her know when you will be attending.
