Following the death of Beatrice de Cardi, in honour of whom the lecture was named, we have changed the agenda for this event to allow us to include a tribute to this incredible lady.
This year’s De Cardi lecture will be given by Mark Knight, Site Director at Must Farm. He will be talking about the incredible work taking place at this site, that has rightly received so much high-profile coverage in the national media due to the staggering finds uncovered there.

About the Beatrice de Cardi Lecture
Beatrice de Cardi was first Assistant Secretary and latterly Secretary of the Council for British Archaeology from 1949 to 1973. In order to recognise her outstanding contribution to the CBA and to the archaeology discipline, the Council decided in 1976 to inaugurate a series of lectures, to be called after her. The speakers are given the freedom to discuss their own approach to any aspect of British archaeology.
The first Beatrice de Cardi Lecture was delivered in Oxford on 27 October 1976, jointly organised by the Council for British Archaeology and the Oxford University Department for External Studies.
The Council for British Archaeology headquarters in York was renamed 'Beatrice de Cardi House' in honour of her 100th birthday in 2014.
