History Society: Discovering Avebury – Landscape and People

April 18 @ 7:30 pm - 9:00 pm

Discovering Avebury – Landscape and People

SPEAKER: Dr Nick Snashall

Dr Nick Snashall is the National Trust archaeologist for the Stonehenge and Avebury World Heritage Site. She has excavated on prehistoric, Roman and Medieval sites across Britain and Europe. An expert in the Neolithic and Bronze Age, her research interests include prehistoric stone tools, landscape inhabitation and the archaeology of ritual and religion. She is co-director of the Avebury Living with Monuments Project.

Avebury, its ancient stones and burial mounds have been the subject of speculation and exploration for centuries. In this talk Dr Nick Snashall will reveal the story of a landscape that almost four hundred years after the antiquary John Aubrey first encountered, it is still giving up its secrets.


The Marlborough History Society warmly welcomes guests to our talks at £5.00 per person. Students are free.
Membership to the Marlborough History Society is £15.00 per annum. If you wish to become a member, please click here.

Gift Aid Declaration

Thank you so much for donating to St Peter’s and St Paul’s Marlborough Trust. Your support is helping us to raise vital funds in order to preserve this building of significant historic interest and to provide a centre for the community to explore its history and enjoy its space.

If you sign up to Gift Aid, a tax relief allowing UK charities to reclaim an extra 25% in tax on every eligible donation made by a UK taxpayer, it means that without donating a penny extra, you're helping us keep St Peter's Church open for years to come.

There are a couple of reasons that may affect our ability to reclaim that extra money, so please contact us within 21 days if:
You expect to pay less than your Gift Aid value, in UK income and/or Capital Gains Tax in the current year, or your personal details, such as name and address have changed.

If you have not paid enough tax to meet the Gift Aid claimed by St Peter’s and St Paul’s Marlborough Trust and have not notified us of this, HMRC may seek to recover this sum from you directly, as it is your responsibility to pay any difference. You can get in touch with us on if you have any questions.
