LANCASTER Roman fort, ancient signal stations and historic artefacts from Whitby will be just a few of the topics covered at Ingleborough Archaeology Group’s talk on Monday, February 19 by archaeologist and author Dr Andrew White.

Dr White, head of Lancaster City Museum for 20 years until his retirement, will explain how he got into archaeology and will delve into his own history to relate tales from his distinguished career, which included several years at Lancaster University and at Lincoln museums.

In addition to Roman Lancaster, some of the historic sites he will talk about include Quernmore Roman tilery near Lancaster; Boston, Lincoln and Horncastle in Lincolnshire; and research on Roman signal stations in Yorkshire.

The talk is one of a series organised by Ingleborough Archaeology Group for 2024. Future talks include: A Brief History of Settle; Hills of the Sun, Mountains of the Moon; and Skipton Woods.

The talk is at 7.30pm on February 19 at Ingleborough Community Centre, Ingleton, and all are welcome. (£3 for non-members.)
