September's talk welcomes Julian Richards, the archaeologist, writer and educator, best known for presenting ‘Meet the Ancestors’ on BBC2.  His talk entitled ‘Stonehenge 100 - changes at the monument 1900 – 1925’  covers the years between 1900 and 1925, which saw some monumental changes take place to Stonehenge, from collapse of stones, to restoration, two changes of ownership, a proper guide book, fences and an admission change. All these will be explored and explained by archaeologist Julian Richards who has studied Stonehenge for nearly 40 years and is the author of the current site guidebook. Copies of Julian’s publications will be available at the talk.

Further details of this and other Bemerton Talks are available on the Bemerton Talks Page.
