2021 programme

What are we planning to get up to this year?

Please find our provisional events programme for this year below. We hope to hold socially distanced outdoor meetings again in the spring and return to normal sessions later in the year. In the meantime, we continue to meet virtually. Full details will be sent out to members once confirmed – please drop us a message if you think you’ve missed an email.


January – Tudors (digital event)

We’re travelling back to the 1500s when the first maps of Worcestershire were made, Elizabeth I visited the city and a merchant called Arnold Beane helpfully wrote a list of everything in his house.

February – Rubbish! (digital event)

Rubbish is an archaeologist’s treasure trove. We’ll start off in the present by seeing how much information modern rubbish can tell us about a household, before exploring the search for a Norman castle through… you’ve guessed it – ancient rubbish!

March – Census (digital event)

2021 is census year, so we’ll explore historic censuses to see what they can tell us about Victorian life and how the excavation of Worcester’s Cathedral Square ties in with written records.
