Birmingham Archaeologists Invite you to Stonehenge

As I reported a few weeks back, the recent review of the Institute of Archaeology & Antiquity at the University of Birmingham has resulted in proposals to restructure the school into the Department of Classics & Ancient History and a Centre for Byzantine, Ottoman & Modern Greek Studies as part of the School of History & Cultures. The archaeologists concerned have issued an invitation:
In light of the proposed changes, we shall be taking this opportunity to celebrate the achievements of the IAA in education and research. We would be delighted if you would join us at Stonehenge for an unofficial social gathering to mark this change. Next Saturday 18th August at midday we shall be meeting at the Cursus Ridge Barrows, Stonehenge, which has been investigated as part of our recent project, ‘Stonehenge Hidden Landscapes’ (as seen in the recent edition of PAST: From here some of the team involved in the project will be giving guided tours of the Stonehenge wider landscape. All are welcome to join us for what promises to be an exciting afternoon of celebration and reflection on the past whilst anticipating what the future of archaeological and historical research and education have to offer. For maps and additional information see the webpage, if you have any questions please visit the Facebook event page.
