'Medieval graffiti' by Matthew Champion
Friday 1st June 2018 at 7:30pm
Eyenesbury Junior School, Montagu St, Eynesbury, Saint Neots PE19 2TD
If walls could speak… they would reveal how they hold the key to real life stories, of medieval men and women lost in the shadows of history. Hear about the medieval beasts, knights battling unseen dragons, ships sailing across lime-washed oceans and the demons who stalk the walls of our churches. For centuries these carved writings and artworks have lain largely unnoticed… until Matthew started his nationwide survey.
All welcome (Members: Free; Non-members: £3.00).

'Ramsey Abbey – the elusive remains of an extensive site' by Roger Mould
Wednesday 4th June 2018 at 7:00pm
The Parkway Sports & Social Club, Maskew Avenue, Peterborough, PE1 2AS
n April 2017 Ramsey Abbey Community Project was born. What have we discovered and what has the project added to our knowledge of the site?
The Great Benedictine Abbey of Ramsey was the first of the great religious houses in Eastern Fenland to be founded and in its time one of the most important, influential and wealthiest Abbey in the Fens. In its heyday it was home to at least 80 Monks, and behind its walls a renowned school was founded in about 985. For over 500 years the Abbey flourished, but in 1539 the Abbey was dissolved by Henry VIII. Today there is very little to see of the once great Abbey, only a wonderful 15th Century Abbey Gate House. Roger started his archaeology life at Fane Road and launched the Warboys Archaeology Project in 2012. The Ramsey Abbey project is the latest of the team’s work.
