A public talk, The Archaeology of the Westgate Gardens, will take place on Saturday 9th April at The Beaney (2–4pm). This is the first of three talks hosted by The Beaney whilst our exhibition is on in The Front Room.

The second talk, CAT @ 40 by Dr Paul Bennett, is on Thursday 14 April and is already fully booked! It is hoped that an extended version of this talk will take place later in this 40th year.

Canterbury’s medieval computer: the discovery of the Quadrans Novus at the House of Agnes by Andrew Linklater who discovered this amazing medieval scientific instrument, will take place on Thursday 21 April, 6–7pm.

Bookings are still being taken for both Jake’s and Andrew’s talks via thebeaney.co.uk, though it is also possible to drop into the Saturday afternoon event.
