Illuminating the past – Enhancing the present – Inspiring the future

Sold out, but more coming soon

Quadrans novus

All of our Public Talks hosted by the Beaney during the exhibition 40years: Canterbury Archaeological Trust have sold out!  Jake’s talk on work in the Westgate Parks and Paul’s whistle-stop tour of the first 40 years of the Trust were both enthusiastically received and the third talk will no doubt be just as fascinating.

Andy Linklater will present the final talk in the series on Thursday 21 April, telling the story of the discovery of a quadrans novus at the House of Agnes in St Dunstan’s Street. The object is very rare; Canterbury’s is only the seventh known in the world. The instrument itself is now at the British Museum, but a replica has been loaned to the exhibition.

We hope to repeat each of the talks later in this 40th year.
