... is on Wednesday June 21st, starting at 7.30 pm in the Church Hall, Butts Road, Chiseldon SN4 0NJ.
‘The Story of the Iron Age in Wiltshire’.
Speaker: Bob Clarke
The introduction of iron tools, defended settlements, hill forts and the accoutrements of battle all suggest a country in turmoil. But the Iron Age is also a period of great artistic expression. This talk will investigate this artistic expression and the power bases that developed prior to the Roman invasion.
Meetings are free to members, but there is a £3.00 charge for visitors. Why not join us? Membership is still only £10 a year. For details of the 2017 programme of talks and events, click here.

The Museum will be open every Saturday until October, from 2.00 pm to 4.00 pm. Admission is free.
