Join us on Saturday 15th of July at The Theatre Chipping Norton for an event to celebrate not only the start of the National Festival of Archaeology but also the 20th year of operation of the Rollright Trust, guardians of the Rollright Stone monuments.

20th Anniversary event

The day will include archaeological exhibits, activities and demonstrations. Professional archaeologists including Finds Liason Officer Anni Byard and Prof. Timothy Darvill, will be presenting talks to include the latest updates on the recent Saxon Lady skeleton and grave goods find, Cotswold megaliths, Chastleton House and other topics.

During the day storytelling will be taking place as well as hands on demonstrations. The day will finish with a showing of the Werner Hertzog documentary Cave of Forgotten Dreams which fittingly blends the two disciplines of archaeology and art.

We have events suitable for all ages. All events are free but booking is essential for talks in the auditorium - contact the Box Office 01608 642350.
