We’re delighted to announce that Dr. Patrick Greene OBE will be sharing his stories and memories of the original community excavations undertaken between 1971 and 1987 at Norton Priory.
Tickets for ‘An Evening with Dr. Patrick Greene OBE’ are now on sale, priced £12 per person (£10 for members), to include a hotpot supper (a vegetarian option is also available). This event is part of Halton’s Borough of Culture programme of activity.
The event, starting at 6:30pm on Saturday 25th September 2021, and hosted in the museum building, will provide a rare opportunity to hear first hand from the original director of excavations at what is now recognised as Europe’s most excavated monastic site.
Patrick’s visit also coincides with the opening of new trenches by the University of Liverpool’s Department of Archaeology, Classics and Egyptology, under the direction of Professor Harold Mytum and Dr. Rob Philpott, as over 80 undergraduates will be seeking to help uncover more of Norton Priory’s secrets.
Tickets available from the ‘More Info’ link on this page.
