Our next lecture on Wednesday 5th December will be given by our esteemed President, Professor Joann Fletcher. Her topic, Armageddon, will be looking at the archaeological information from 3000BC in that area.

The December and the January topics are linked, for Armageddon, now known as Megiddo, as Joann and Dr Francis Toase will be looking at happenings in entirely different eras. We have two excellent lecturers lined up.  Our President, Professor Joann Fletcher. Joann will talk about archaeology from 3000BC at Armageddon, and she will also look at recent events and archaeological finds, leaving the 100th anniversary of the Battle of Megiddo safely in the hands of committee member, writer and academic, Dr Francis Toase. Francis will give his talk after the Annual General Meeting on 9th January.

In February, Tom Hardie-Forsyth will talk to the Society about his scientific researches in Antarctica.

The March lecture will be given by Professor Jim Sharpe, Professor of Early Modern History, University of York. He will talk about Dick Turpin: Myth and Reality.

The winter programme is  published on the website footer. We invite everyone to come along to our winter evening meetings.  They commence at 7.30pm.

Annual Subscriptions are £7.50 per person, due in October.  Guests are welcome at £2 per person per event in addition to the cost of the event itself.  We always look forward to welcoming people to our events.

Do come along to some or all of our events.  We are a friendly group, and we like to meet new friends and welcome old friends coming to our meetings.  After lectures, we have tea or coffee and biscuits (40 pence per person) available to encourage members and guests to talk with the lecturer in an informal setting.

This winter season will have six lectures. Usually we have five, but with the excellent offers to lecture which we have received there was no way we would not wish to accept and fit them into the schedule.
