5. Alan Wilson Lecture - ‘Cursus Country’:
A lifetime living with pre-history with Martin Green

For all his life Martin Green has lived on a farm in an area of Dorset that is particularly heaped in prehistory. Digging up the past has become an all-consuming passion and his discoveries span over 70,000 years of history – enough to create his own museum.
Martin will talk about some of our region’s outstanding prehistoric remains, his investigations exploring them and his obvious love of archaeology.

Talk by Steve Herra

Discover the mystery of Sweeney Todd - the legend or actual serial killer?
Steve Herra takes you through a wealth of information about the barber but leaves you to decide if the story is fact or fiction. Come and find out for yourself if the victims, the revolving chair, the cellar door plus the connections between the pie shop, the accomplice and St Dunstan’s church are based on truth or are just the product of a good storyteller?
