... is on Wednesday April 19th, starting at 7.30 pm in the Church Hall, Butts Road, Chiseldon SN4 0NJ.
‘Lawrence of Arabia – The Man Behind the Myth’.
Speaker: Dr John Winterburn
John is a long-standing member of CLHG and a professional archaeologist. He takes part each year in digs in the Middle East, so he is well placed to talk on this fascinating and enigmatic man – part adventurer, part soldier – who had a decisive impact on the First World War in the region.
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 in The Old Chapel, Butts Road will re-open on Saturday, 1st April with new displays to supplement the permanent exhibition.

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