May Meeting – Matt Law on Snails in Archaeology

Matt is a Lecturer in Geography (Environmental Change and Sustainability) at Bath Spa University. He’s also a part-time PhD student at Cardiff University, where he’s studying the ecological impact of island settlements in the Western Isles of Scotland. As well as all that, he’s an environmental archaeology specialist at L- P :  Archaeology.

Matt is a firm believer that archaeology, even the very detailed stuff, is for sharing, and is a member of Guerilla Archaeology, a collective who organise archaeology-based public engagement at surprising venues. He is also a co-organiser of Day of Archaeology with our own Lorna Richardson and others.

His specialist area is archaeomalacology, so if you want to find out what it is come along to our next meeting. (Clue, may involve snails)

We’re meeting at Broome Village Hall, Sun Road, Broome, NR35 2RW at 2.00pm on Saturday May 14th. Admission is £2 for members, £3 non-members, usual refreshments will be available.
