Summer Lectures: ‘Chariots, swords and mirrors – the Iron Age burials of the Yorkshire Wolds’ Dr Melanie Giles
Wednesday 30th May 7-9pm £5.00
The Iron Age communities of the Yorkshire Wolds are distinguished by their square barrow burial rite, and the marvellous examples of Celtic art manufactured in this region, including chariots, swords, shields and mirrors. The lecture will explore the beliefs associated with their funeral traditions and some of the spectacular stories that lie behind their burials, showcasing the work of antiquarians and archaeologists past and present, and including Malton Museum’s own unique and enigmatic finds: the chalk figurines and miniature shields.
The lectures at Malton Museum will be held in the Assembly Rooms, which are situated up a flight of stairs. Unfortunately, due to the age of the building, there is currently no lift access available.
