Rings, Wings & Spindle Whorls:
Archaeological treasures and the stories they tell

Jason Buck Storyteller joins forces with broadcaster and archaeologist Mary-Ann Ochota to bring history out from where it's been buried in the ground, back to life and into stories.

Mary-Ann and Jason unearth a unique blend of archeology and storytelling, inspired by artefacts discovered across the British Isles, dating from the Iron Age, to the Second World War and all in time for National Storytelling Week.

Tickets start at £7 Early Birds (sold out) going up to £12 on the door (Adnave tickets and concessions now available).

Thousands of artefacts are discovered in the British Isles every year. Some of them earn their finders enormous sums of money, but most are priceless in a different way, telling the stories of our ancestors’ lives, revealing the secrets and beliefs of the folk who lived here before us. Mary-Ann and Jason reveal the exciting, intriguing, hilarious and sometimes ridiculous stories behind archaeological finds, famous and forgotten.

  • The Viking stone used to weave magic into cloth
  • The prehistoric spoons used to tell the future…
  • …and the human remains they lead us to
  • Buried treasure hidden from the Nazis
  • The golden ring that reveals a family tragedy
  • A fake nose and the lengths lovers will go to

About Jason and Mary-Ann

Jason Buck has been a performer most of his adult life, including gurning, comedy and sword swallowing, but his passion lies in stories - there's nothing like getting lost in a story, the pictures in your head are better than film. Jason has written and published three collections of his own stories, won silver at this year's Grand Lying Contest and won 'Best Bard' at Profound Decisions' 'Theatre of Joy and Sorrow'. He is also unnecessarily tall and has a memorably large moustache. You can see more about him at Facebook.com/JasonBuckStoryteller

Mary-Ann Ochota is probably best known for popping up on telly, presenting shows like Time Team, Britain Afloat and Ancient Impossible. She specialises in archaeology, anthropology and adventure and has written two books on British archaeology: Hidden Histories: A Spotter’s Guide to the British Landscape and Britain’s Secret Treasures which profiles archaeologically priceless artefacts discovered by members of the public. This show – a fusion of myth, folklore and archaeological fact - is based on some of those intriguing objects.
