Prehistoric Pig Legs, Death, Decay, and the Tales of Salty Sea Dogs
Interested in archaeology, but don’t think a lecture sounds appealing? Come along to A Pint with the Past, a chance to learn more about archaeology from our three speakers, put your own knowledge to the test with our quiz, and hear some live bluegrass and hornpipes from our musical archaeologists, all in a real ale pub with a view of a very steep road.
Speakers will be Louisa Pittman (University of Bristol, talk entitled “Appeasing Neptune: Sailors’ Superstitions (and Why Archaeologists Should Care)”), Rich Madgwick (Cardiff University, talk entitled “Feasting on forelimbs:Later Prehistoric Ritual in the Vale of Glamorgan, South Wales”), and Matt Law (Cardiff University,talking on The Human Body from Death to Ancient Skeleton). The quizmaster will be Dr Nick Corcos, and live music played by Kev Potter. Oh, and it’s all free.
The event is on Friday, July 23rd 2010 at the Three Tuns on St George’s Road, Bristol, and starts at 7.30pm.
