Ancestors: An Evening with Alice Roberts

Ancestors: An Evening with Alice Roberts
What can a grave tell us about a person? Did the Neanderthals bury their dead? Why was a man from the Alps buried in Wiltshire, four thousand years ago? How is genetics revolutionising what we know about the deep past? And what does all this mean for us, today?

These are just some of the questions Alice will be exploring as she takes us on a tour of her pick of the most fascinating burials in Britain, with behind-the-scenes insights from digs and filming – and a chance to buy a signed copy of her new book, Ancestors.

Ticket and signed copy of ANCESTORS offer available for this event. You can purchase the book as a merchandise add on in your basket, at the time of checkout.

‘This is a terrific, timely and transporting book – taking us heart, body and mind beyond history, to the fascinating truth of the prehistoric past and the present’ Bettany Hughes

‘While the rest of us read words, Alice reads bones – and what stories they have to tell. In her hands they seem slick with life, bearing messages from ancient worlds. I was captivated.’ Neil Oliver

Please note there is a £2 ticket commission fee included in the price of the ticket.
