Happy New Year!
We hope you had a fantastic Christmas break filled with rest.
This month’s lecture will be presented by Marta Alberti (Site Archaeologist, Vindolanda) on The Last Three Years at Vindolanda (2016 to present).

She is from Milan, Italy, where she graduated with a BA in Classics and Archaeology, later gaining an MA with Distinction from Newcastle University. She is a passionate field archaeologist with a keen interest in gender studies and in all transition phases: changes in society and landscape over time, why they happen and how.

We hope to see you all there! 7:30PM start at Stockton Central Library.
