Illuminating the past – Enhancing the present – Inspiring the future

Three events in Thanet

The Isle of Thanet Archaeological Society has been in touch to tell us about three upcoming talks for the autumn

The first is tonight (24th October) at the Lecture Hall, Crampton Tower Yard (behind the tower), Broadstairs. ‘Rediscovering the hamlet of Upton and the Mystery of the Goodsons’ will be delivered by  Gordon Taylor at 7.45 pm (doors open 7.15). Admission is £3.00 for non IOTAS members.

The second is on Thursday 3rd November at Holy Trinity Church Hall, Cliftonville. Phil Andrews (Wessex Archaeology) will talk on ‘Operation Nightingale’, a project which gives injured soldiers the chance to get involved in archaeology and which has had some remarkable outcomes. Wessex Archaeology’s excavation with them on Salisbury Plain has featured on Time Team. The talk begins at 7.45 pm (doors open 7.15).

The third event is a Wine and Wisdom (undoubtedly with an archaeological flavour) on Saturday 12th November. Admission is £8 to include a fish supper. Email Marilyn Bishop ( for more details and/or to book a table.
