3 exciting talks about new archaeological research in our region

About this event

Lancashire Archaeological Society is delighted to offer what will doubtless be fascinating talks from our three eminent speakers.

Investigating Sickness, Disease and Death by Prof Geoff Timmins from UCLan

In this session Geoff will cover the lure of the physical evidence - local gravestone and monument inscriptions; the public health dimension - local public health reports and counting corpses: identifying and explaining local population crises.

A talk by Norton Priory in Cheshire. Norton Priory is an excavated priory with a large collection of skeletal remains of patrons and monks. The talk will focus on new research into diseases and diet of the inhabitants.

Post excavation skeletal analysis completed on St Peters Church Blackburn by Suzanne McGalliard of Headland Archaeology

Suzanne was the osteoarchaeologist at the burial ground where she helped excavate and analyse 2,000 human remains.

Our Mini Conference will start at 09.30 and finish at 13.00. All talks will be held via Zoom.
