CANCELLED: Soulton Long Barrow and Standing Stones, Sunday 5th August 2018. 3pm.
(REGRETTABLY WE HAVE HAD TO CANCEL THIS EVENT)
The Prehistoric Society are visiting the Soulton Long Barrow and Standing Stones in Shropshire. This example of the modern revival of barrow building is inspired by Neolithic barrows and this fascinating project provides an unique connection between past and modern burial practices. Members will have the opportunity to visit the site and hear from Tim Ashby and Toby Angel who coordinated its construction, and also Marie Louise Stig-Sorensen on the implications for heritage and archaeology. There will be an opportunity to purchase tea and cake!
Attendees should meet at Soulton Hall manor house at 3pm on Sunday 5th August 2018.
