February – Angus Wainwright, National Trust

Our speaker for February is Angus Wainwright who has been the National Trust’s archaeologist for the East of England since 1995.

Angus’s talk, “The work of a National Trust archaeologist – from atom bombs to Saxon kings” will look at the whole range of his work for NT covering all periods and types of archaeology and advising on the research, management and interpretation of archaeological sites and often whole landscapes. The talk will focus in on several sites in the area including Sutton Hoo, Orford Ness and Wimpole Park.
