Colin Richards, Professor of World Prehistory and Archaeology at the University of Manchester,will be giving a talk entitled
“Great Neolithic Monuments of the North” on Thursday 16th October, 7.30 pm in Castleton Village Hall.
The end of the fourth millennium cal BC marks a point when a series of apparently different monuments begin to be constructed across Britain and Ireland. In this talk I want to explore the ‘differences’ between stone circles, henge monuments and passage graves in northern Britain and Ireland.
As we will see things may not be so clear-cut as they seem.
The talk has been organised by Castleton Historical Society. As usual, non-members are very welcome (£3 entrance which includes refreshments).
