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. The results of recent fieldwork will be discussed by a panel of speakers, including Nick Barton, Lynden Cooper, Daryl
Garton and Phil Harding, as well as volunteers working on the HLF-funded community project 'Ice Age Journeys' near
Newark. Further details will be announced in due course.
We are always open to new ideas for venues and speakers. If you have any particular interests or know of projects that
could be covered at future meetings, then please feel free to send your ideas to firstname.lastname@example.org.
