Archaeology Talks 2019: Saxon Worthing

The enigmatic Saxons came to Sussex at the fall of the Roman Empire, or perhaps even earlier. The nationally important cemetery at Highdown Hill helps us illuminate these people, their beautiful jewellery and deadly weaponry, but who were they really? Mercenaries, invaders, settlers or all three?

Autumn lecture programme

This year sees the return of our popular autumn lecture programme at Worthing Museum & Art Gallery. This year we’ll be covering a huge swathe of the history of Worthing and Sussex, starting with the early hominids who called this land home some 480,000 years ago, all the way through to the trials of World War II.

Talks are £7.50/person, which includes a glass of wine (plus tea/coffee) and the opportunity to handle genuine artefacts from our collections after each lecture. If you book all 8 talks then you get 2 free! Talks start at 18:30 and with the object handling session usually finish around 20:30. Suitable for ages 16+.
