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.

Opening Celebration: From the Land and Viewpoints

Opening Celebration: From the Land and Viewpoints

9th February 2018

We are pleased to invite you to the opening celebration of our winter season of exhibitions.

From the Land: Henry Moore, Ewen Henderson & other artists

The process of collecting from the land is key to the work of the lead artists in the show: the celebrated British sculptor Henry Moore and innovative ceramic artist Ewen Henderson. Both artists use the land as a source of inspiration and physical material for their sculptural work.

Sculpture and drawings by Moore will be displayed alongside works by Henderson and fifteen other artists including Paul Nash, John Piper and Evelyn Gibbs which distort the perceived pastoral nature of British landscape. The exhibition presents the more dramatic aspects of rural environments and in doing so places Moore within a visceral, tumultuous history of Landscape.

Viewpoints: Faces and Viewpoints: Collective Visions

Viewpoints brings together two photographers that work within the Documentary genre, highlighting varied approaches of documenting the world today.

General Admission   Free
