Tour of Burrough Hill hill-fort and Somerby church: Sunday 29th June, Burrough-on-the-Hill, Leicestershire In the final season of the University of Leicester and ULAS’ training and research excavation at Burrough Hill hill-fort, members of CBA East Midlands will have the opportunity to enjoy a guided tour of the site and the excavations. The tour will begin at 11am, and will be followed after lunch (not provided) by a visit to Somerby church in the company of Dr Mike Hawkes. The tour is free for members of CBA East Midlands, but please contact David Ingham beforehand to book your place on it. The car park (located half-way between the villages of Somerby and Burrough on the Hill) tends to fill up quickly, so you are advised to arrive early. Walking tour around Hope, Derbyshire: Saturday 20th September 2014 This walk of about 5km will visit a series of monuments between Bradwell and Hope, including Grey Ditch Dark Age earthwork, Navio Roman fort, and the Viking cross-shaft at Hope Church, plus possible Roman terraceways and a range of medieval and post-medieval agricultural and industrial features. The walk will be led by Graeme Guilbert, with Daryl Garton and Phil Sidebottom. There is no charge for the walk, but it would be helpful for people to let Daryl know if they plan to come along. See below for further details. At the End of the Ice Age: Holy Trinity Centre, Newark, Nottinghamshire, NG24 4AU, Saturday 1st November 2014 CBA East Midlands will be hosting a joint conference with FARI Archaeology about some of the new discoveries that have provided fresh insights into the activities of early hunters during a period of rapid climate change at the end of the Ice Age.
