The Prehistoric Society Europa Conference 2019: Neolithic Connections: Britain, The Channel Islands and Francewill be held at the Pomme d’Or Hotel in St Helier, Jersey from 14–16 June 2019. This year the conference celebrates the achievements of Dr Alison Sheridan, National Museums Scotland, in the field of European prehistory.

Places are limited and require a separate ticket. Many of the sites on this tour are owned by La Société Jersiaise and managed by Jersey Heritage, and we are grateful for their contributions to this conference.
