This year the Archaeology Group AGM will take place in London at the Museum of London Docklands and will be combined with a seminar discussing ‘Archaeology on Display’. Talks will cover topics such as the redisplays at Jorvik, Hadrian’s Wall and the Mary Rose, exhibitions containing human remains at Bristol’s M Shed and the public display of conservation in museums.
This will then be followed by a chance to see the exciting new exhibition ‘Tunnel: The Archaeology of Crossrail’ which displays the range of archaeological objects unearthed by Crossrail, Europe’s largest infrastructure project. The artefacts help to explore 8,000 years of human history, revealing the stories of Londoners ranging from Mesolithic tool makers and inhabitants of Roman Londinium to those affected by the Great Plague of 1665.
The Museum of London Docklands is open from 10.00am so participants can view the exhibition prior to the AGM if more convenient.
Lunch and afternoon refreshments will be included with the tickets to attend the talks and exhibition. The day will start with the AGM at 11.00am, followed by lunch, talks and the exhibition visit from 4.30pm
