  1. Come on Ladies and Gentlemen -escape from all the doom and gloom and listen to a fascinating talk regarding this important Lincolnshire site.

    I will also be giving a brief update on my next book which will be out later this year.


  2. We were rather disappointed to see a low turnout last night for this fascinating talk on the excavations at Thornton Abbey. It was a very fast-moving and informative presentation and, despite the small audience, there were some very enthusiastic questions “from the floor” – but on balance we thought perhaps we should avoid arranging talks in mid-summer! What do you think? Where did you see this Talk advertised? Press, our Newsletter, our Website, the Sheffield Community Heritage Forum? If you’re not already subscribed to SCHF it would be a good idea to join (it’s free) so as not to miss anything! Please don’t miss the next one!
