This event has already taken place.

Host: Blenheim Palace Literary Festival
Location: Methodist Church, Oxford Street, Woodstock, Oxfordshire OX20 1TT
Speaker: Barry Cunliffe


Renowned archaeologist Professor Barry Cunliffe sets off in search of our earliest ancestors, following the trail as bands of hunter-gathers first followed the retreating ice north 12,000 years ago and continuing up to the eve of the Norman conquest. He explains how modern archaeology turns many of our long-held assumptions on the head, including about the origin of the Celts, the impact of the Roman occupation and the extent of ebb and flow between the populations of Britain and the continent.
