Talk digs deep into history

AMATEUR archeologists will be given a closer look at Pompeii and Herculaneum in a presentation at Morpeth Library.

The illustrated talk will be given by local archeologist Barry Mead, who will discuss the historic Italian gems in a power point demonstration, showing photographs of the two sites and their artefacts.

The event will take place on Thursday, January 26, from 2pm to 3.30pm.

There will be a small charge of £2 per person, which includes refreshments.
