A Tale of Three Chariots

A talk by Paula Ware
Managing Director, MAP Archaeological Practice

In 2017 a remarkable Iron Age chariot burial was found during the final stages of an excavation at Pocklington, East Yorkshire, along with an impressive 164 burials and 74 square barrows. Further excavation revealed two more chariot burials – all very different – and some stunning finds. This is a talk not to be missed!

Paula Ware is managing director of MAP Archaeological Practice, with over 30 years of experience working as a professional archaeologist in a commercial environment.

FREE. All welcome, no booking necessary, doors open from 7pm. The lecture will be at the Rattray Lecture Theatre, University of Leicester, University Road, Leicester (LE1 7RH)

This is a joint meeting with the Prehistoric Society.
