Tom will be speaker

Ayrshire Post - - GIRVAN NEWS -

Gir­van and District His­tory So­ci­ety’s speaker for the even­ing is Tom Bar­clay, the his­tory li­brar­ian in Ayr.

The ti­tle of his talk is “Ayr­shire be­fore His­tory.” a per­sonal view of early sites and their Ar­chae­ol­ogy.

Ayr­shire con­tains many traces of hu­man ac­tiv­ity from the time be­tween the ar­rival of the first hunter gath­er­ers and the ar­rival of the Ro­mans.

This talk will look at a se­lec­tion of the sur­viv­ing re­mains, and place them in the con­text of early de­vel­op­ment else­where in Scot­land and be­yond.

New dis­cov­er­ies and sci­en­tific de­vel­op­ments are broad­en­ing our un­der­stand­ing of the lives of our early an­ces­tors.

En­trance ; Mem­bers £ 1, non- Mem­bers£ 2, this in­cludes a cup of tea and a bis­cuit.

All in­ter­ested par­ties most wel­come.

Award Sir Alan Massey, CEO Mar­itime & Coast­guard Agency and Alis­tair Jar­dine
