For Winchester Archaeology and Local History
Aims and objectives:
WARG, the society for Winchester archaeology and local history, promotes the study of archaeology and local history in the City of Winchester and the surrounding area, through monthly events including lectures; walks; excursions and excavations.
11th October AGM followed by PhD candidate presentations:
The impact of the Black Death (1348-49) on the clergy of the Winchester Diocese with John Merriman, University of Winchester
Romano-British religious cults of the Sky Deities with Danielle Sylvester, University of Winchester
We have returned to our usual venue, the Hampshire Records Office Cinema, for many of our talks, although some we will hold online. No need to book for the HRO, and Zoom lectures will commence 7.30pm on the second Monday of the month with the invitation link sent out about a week in advance.
A new series of local history books produced by Stephen Old.
