What's On

The Aerial Atlas of Ancient Britain Monday October 3rd – 7.30 pm

Join us in Wedmore Village Hall for an evening of inspirational images from author and photographer, David R Abram.

David has spent the past five years capturing views of Britain’s most spectacular prehistoric sites from above in rare, sunrise light using drones and telescopic poles. Whether Neolithic tombs in Orkney, Bronze Age ceremonial sites in Snowdonia or the enigmatic earthworks carved by our ancestors over the Mendip Hills, his images reveal astonishing forms invisible at ground level, and intriguing connections between the monuments and their varied landscapes.

Lively and rich with archaeological insight, David’s illustrated talk will cherry-pick highlights from his new book, the Aerial Atlas of Ancient Britain (published this month by Thames & Hudson with a foreword by Professor Alice Roberts), which charts in 227 beautiful photos the arc of British prehistory from the end of the Ice Age to the arrival of the Romans.

This is a rare opportunity to see his most acclaimed work projected at scale – an experience that is sure to inspire visits to prehistoric sites in the Wedmore area you already know, and many you don’t! If you were lucky enough to catch his recent exhibition at Salisbury Museum, you’ll know what a treat we are in for.

Signed, embossed copies of the Aerial Atlas of Ancient Britain will be on sale after the talk.
7.30 pm (doors open at 7 pm)

Tickets are £7.50 on the night, or via the Eventbrite website’s link below :
