Southampton Archaeology Society Study Day

Our 2020 Study Day is being organised in association with Southampton City Council and Mayflower400, to be held at the Southampton Art Gallery lecture theatre.

The Study Day will look at early 17th century Hampshire and Southampton; the Mayflower story and ships of the period, and how Southampton was chosen by the group as their intended port for departure.

Other talks will focus on archaeological evidence of the time from Southampton, religious dissent in Hampshire, illustrated by examples of contemporary graffiti found in Winchester Cathedral.

Life in early 17th century Hampshire will be related by costumed re-enactors, with the story of the Mayflower memorial erected in Southampton a hundred years ago.

• Dr Andy Russel; Emma Anderson of Southampton Archaeology Unit
• Dr Rosalind Johnson and Dr Cindy Wood (both University of Winchester)
• Geoffrey Wheeler of SeeSouthampton guides
• Mary and Roger Harris (Little Woodham 17th century village)

Tickets include buffet lunch and refreshments. To book email:
