Evening lecture - 'From Lincolnshire to Luxor: Harry Burton, the Camera, and King Tut'

Evening lecture - 'From Lincolnshire to Luxor: Harry Burton, the Camera, and King Tut'

How did Harry Burton, born in Stamford in 1879, come to photograph the most famous archaeological find of the 20th century – the tomb of Tutankhamun? In this lecture, Egyptologist Christina Riggs presents new research on Burton’s life and career. Photography changed both how archaeologists worked and how the public viewed archaeology. Burton’s camera may have captured ‘King Tut’, but it also captured our imagination of Egypt, ancient and modern alike.

The lecture will be held in The Collection's auditorium. The museum and the Photographing Tutankhamun exhibition will be open from 6pm and there will be a paying bar in the Orientation Hall. Dr Riggs' lecture will begin at 7pm and the event will close at 9pm.

George Shaw: My Back to Nature Private View

George Shaw: My Back to Nature Private View

You are invited to attend the private viewing of George Shaw: My Back to Nature, an exhibition organised by the National Gallery, London.

My Back to Nature – a free exhibition of more than fifty new paintings and drawings – is the result of George Shaw’s two-and-a-half years as the National Gallery’s Rootstein Hopkins Associate Artist.

Based in a studio located in the heart of the National Gallery, Shaw had swift and unrestricted access to the Gallery to explore the collection out of hours at his leisure, draw from the pictures, observe the public, and find inspiration in great art for his own work. The result is predominantly woodland landscapes, ones that investigate the clash of cultures; classical stories linked with the traces of similar, timeless behaviour in the modern world; and the portrayal of religion.

Lunchtime Lecture - The Charter of the Forest

Lunchtime Lecture - The Charter of the Forest

Join Dr Erik Grigg for a lunchtime talk.

On 6th November 1217 the Charter of the Forest was issued, giving back traditional rights to ordinary people to use Royal hunting grounds for agriculture and livestock grazing. Almost exactly 800 years to the day since its issue, Dr Grigg will explore the creation and continuing significance of this document, of which Lincoln can proudly boast having copies from both 1217 and 1225.

Dr Erik Grigg is Learning Officer for Lincolnshire Heritage Services.

This talk is part of our ongoing Lunchtime Lectures series. It will be held in the auditorium at The Collection, starting at 12.30 and lasting for approximately 30 minutes.

Lunchtime Lecture - Revealing the Roman Dead: recent excavations and research in Lincoln

Lunchtime Lecture - Revealing the Roman Dead: recent excavations and research in Lincoln

Join Natasha Powers of Allen Archaeology for an archaeological lunchtime lecture

Excavations in Lincoln in recent years have seen a number of new Roman burials uncovered, adding to our understanding of the location and extent of the cemeteries located outside of the Roman city. Analysis of the skeletons themselves is revealing new insights into burial practices, including the burials of newborns and incidents of unusual ('deviant') rites such as decapitation. In this talk Natasha Powers will explore some of these new discoveries and place them within the context of our existing knowledge about death and burial in Roman Britain.

Natasha Powers is a Senior Manager at Allen Archaeology and an experienced field archaeologist and osteologist.

This talk is part of our ongoing Lunchtime Lectures series. It will be held in the auditorium at The Collection, starting at 12.30 and lasting for approximately 30 minutes.

Lunchtime Lecture - Sex, Symbol and Supernatural: Roman Phallic Carvings in Lincolnshire

Lunchtime Lecture - Sex, Symbol and Supernatural: Roman Phallic Carvings in Lincolnshire

Join Adam Parker of The Open University for an archaeological lunchtime lecture.

Roman phallic imagery has been intriguing people for centuries, variously viewed as being either obscene or comical; placed proudly on public display or locked away in special rooms for the eyes of certain visitors only. Tour guides at Pompeii famously, and erroneously, tell tourists that phallic imagery on buildings and pavements points the way to brothels. In this lecture, Adam Parker will explore the phenomenon of Roman phallic imagery in Britain using examples from Lincolnshire, placing it into the wider context of Roman ritual and superstition.

Adam Parker is Assistant Curator of Archaeology at the Yorkshire Museum and currently studying for his PhD with the Open University, investigating Magic in Roman Britain.

This talk is part of our ongoing Lunchtime Lectures series. It will be held in the auditorium at The Collection, starting at 12.30 and lasting for approximately 30 minutes.

Lunchtime Lecture - Early Middle Palaeolithic Occupation of the Channel Plain Region

Lunchtime Lecture - Early Middle Palaeolithic Occupation of the Channel Plain Region

Join Sam Griffiths of the University of Southampton for an archaeological lunchtime lecture.

The English Channel Region (or 'La Manche') has long been of interest to Palaeolithic Research and Quaternary studies. However the key Neanderthal site of La Cotte de St. Brelade, originally excavated between 1962-78, has never fully been re-evaluated within a modern research context. In this talk, Sam Griffiths will discuss some of the new knowledge, its importance to understanding Neanderthal occupations of the region, and what it can tell us of the further North-Western European region, with examples from Lincolnshire and the East Midlands.

Sam Griffiths is a PhD student at the University of Southampton.

This talk is part of our ongoing Lunchtime Lectures series. It will be held in the auditorium at The Collection, starting at 12.30 and lasting for approximately 30 minutes.
