Discussion Group: Excursions in the 1800s with Rev. John Skinner: rector and antiquarian

Wednesday 7th December,  7:30pm, Library Meeting Room

Rev John Skinner was Rector of Camerton and a keen antiquarian, who kept many journals of his life as a clergyman and his numerous trips to archaeological sites both at home and abroad.  This Discussion Group session, led by Sophie Hawke, will look at the life of Rev Skinner,  and examine his accounts of visits to some local sites and his contribution to archaeology.


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:

There is NO MEETING in January.  The first Discussion Group of 2017 will be Wednesday 1st February – topic to be announced.

I am now looking for speakers for 2017!

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.
