Cumbria Symposium

A symposium on The North Britons is to be held in Carlisle on 28 April 2018. This is organised by Lancaster University in collaboration with the Cumberland and Westmorland Antiquarian and Archaeological Society (CWAAS) and DGNHAS. Our society is sponsoring one of the speakers, Dr Christopher Bowles, who will be giving a talk about our excavation at Trusty's Hill.

The programme and other information can be found on Lancaster University's website.
Booking online is also available via the University website.

A copy of the programme in PDF format with a postal booking form is available on the DGNHAS website.

The speaker at our Members' Night on 23 February will be David Dutton, whose talk will be entitled Munich after 80 years. David gave a well-received talk a few years ago, and we look forward to another excellent evening.
