Lustleigh Society – A Talk on Cess Pits, Sewers & Cemeteries by Dr Peter Marsden.

October 17 @ 7:00 pm - 11:00 pm

Our speaker for the October meeting is Dr. Peter Marsden, a professional archaeologist, historian and author formerly at the Museum of London, and Fellow of the Society of Antiquaries.  Dr. Marsden will speak on his life as an archaeologist and how the excitement of discovering new information about the past may lead from the cess pits, sewers and cemeteries from palaces and the homes of people of the distant past. Dr. Marsden has campaigned for laws to protect sites, and founded the Shipwreck Museum at Hastings in which to preserve and display historic maritime treasures that would otherwise be lost.

Doors of the village hall will open at 7pm for refreshments, talk is at 7. 30pm.

Everyone welcome.
