HALH 40th Annual Symposium

Our 40th Annual Symposium will be taking place on Saturday 9 November at Woolmer Green. This year’s theme is ‘Local History, Landscape & Archaeology’ and we are very pleased to welcome some excellent speakers. We will be considering how the study of archaeology and local history come together in the research of our local landscape.  More details and a booking form can be found in the Autumn 2019 edition of News & Events or via our website
