Slingsby in the Iron Age – Talk by Prof Mel Giles

Tuesday 19th March, 7.30pm, Talk on Iron Age Slingsby in Methodist School Room

In this lecture, Professor Melanie Giles will explain the significance of Slingsby’s Iron Age ‘barrow cemetery’. Building on last year’s lecture by Bruce Harrison on the Mesolithic and Neolithic evidence from the rich evidence of flint finds, Mel will reflect on the evidence from antiquarian, aerial and archaeological discoveries to explain why Slingsby might offer a unique insight into Ryedale’s Iron Age past, setting the scene for Professor Dominic Powlesland to share his latest thoughts on Roman Ryedale in the light of excavations at Hovingham’s Roman villa in April.
