Discussion Group: The Bradford Hundred Moot Site

Wednesday 2nd November,  7:30pm, Library Meeting Room

In this session, Rob Arkell will talk about his research into the site of the Bradford Hundred Moot.  A moot site is the meeting place of local dignitaries in ancient – medieval times.  Bradford on Avon’s moot site is a mystery…or is it?

Discussion Group covers a wide range of subjects, and if you haven’t been along to a session yet, do try it out.

The meetings take place on the first Wednesday of each month at 7:30pm in the Library Meeting Room, and are FREE to members.  Non-members can attend one session before being asked to join.  If you know of someone who isn’t a member, do bring them along – it’s a great introduction to the Museum.

Upcoming sessions:

Wednesday 7th December
Rev John Skinner’s Journals and Manuscripts
(Rev Skinner was a late 18th/early 19th century local vicar and amateur archaeologist – his writings contain information on archaeology in the landscape around Bradford on Avon)
Led by Sophie Hawke

Topics for 2017 will be announced nearer the time in the Museletter, as well as being posted here on the website and on our Facebook page, and on Twitter (@BoAMuseum).

If you would like to suggest a topic, or would like to offer to lead a session, please contact Kate Turnbull (Museum Trustee) on 01225 866328 or at turnbullke@googlemail.com.
