Local History Group: Round Mounds Talk

The motte at Skipsea – Dr Jim Leary

Slingsby Village Hall, Tuesday 19 February, 7.30 pm

A talk by Dr Jim Leary, at the invitation of Slingsby Local History Group.

Dr Jim Leary from the Department of Archaeology, York University will give a talk on his work on Prehistoric Round Mounds, most famously Silbury Hill in Wiltshire, and most recently Skipsea in East Yorkshire; thought to be a medieval motte but possibly with earlier origins.

Jim has just joined the Department of Archaeology at York from the University of Reading. He previously worked for English Heritage.

The talk will be in the main hall – all are welcome!
