Venue: Stony Stratford Library, 5-7 Church Street, Stony Stratford
Date: 20 Nov 2018
There will be a FoSSL talk at the Library on Tuesday 20 November, when Rosemary Pemberton will speak about Augustus Pitt Rivers. Pitt Rivers was an English army officer who can lay claim to have been one of the world's first scientific archaeologists. His huge collection of archaeological and ethnological objects forms the basis of Oxford University's Pitt Rivers Museum. Fuller details about Rosemary's talk will be sent out nearer the time.
