Next year’s date for the CBA‘s annual flagship event, consisting of hundreds of individual events up and down the country, has now been announced.
The festival will run from 14th to 29th July, 2012 and submissions from local archaeology and history groups for inclusion are now being taken via email to festival (at) britarch (dot) ac (dot) uk, or via the festival website which holds further information.
We look forward to seeing the range of events which will be made publicly searchable in the Spring of next year. All CBA members will also receive a booklet containing the event diary in full in June.
Police are probing the destruction of a Pagan stone circle in Lampeter, South West Wales. The University of Lampeter is well-known for its theological courses and there is speculation that the attack could be religiously motivated.
The site is used as a meeting place for the 75 members of the university’s Pagan Society, whose members have said the damage is “heart-breaking”. They have called for the vandals to be “caught and punished”….. but not , so far as we know, for them to be burned at the stake.
Which is surely game, set and match to the Pagans!
