King's Low and Queen's Low (Round Barrow(s)) — News

Kings Low and Queens Low Excavation Report.

This pair of neighbouring Bronze Age burial mounds, near Stafford, were being eroded by rabbits and agriculture before being excavated by Prof Gary Lock of Oxford Uni and the skilled workforce of Stoke on Trent Museum Archaeological Society.
Years of work have gone into compiling a thorough report on the excavation, which is now being published as an impressive and thoroughly illustrated softback, by Archaeopress.
The book will be launched at the Learning Suite of the Potteries Museum, Hanley, 7.30 Friday 14th February 2014, where there will be illustrated talks by the co-authors Prof Gary Lock and Winston Hollins. The talks will cover the geographical and historical contexts of the sites, and the fascinating finds.
All are welcome and admission (from Warner Street) will be free. There will even be refreshments.
Active member of Stoke on Trent Museum Archaeological Society.
Determined visitor to British and worldwide archaeological sites, usually by mountain bike.
Stoke City FC and Trent Reznor disciple.
