On Tuesday 14 July the Curator of our Museum Dr Ros Cleal and I will be offering you the opportunity to step  into the world of the Avebury henge builders for the day. We’ll be sharing some of our latest discoveries; I’ll be taking you on a field visit to Avebury Henge and Stone Circles and Ros will be giving you the opportunity to see finds from the Museum collections that are normally behind closed doors.

Take a look at our events listings to find out more and to book yourself onto a journey into our ancient past.

Where have I gone?

5 Jul

In 2011-2012 I was teaching 1-2 classes and loving the additional avenue of discussion provided by blogging. Somewhere along the way, my class load increased to 8 between Mt. Hood Community College, Washington State University-Vancouver, Clark College, and Ashford University. The students and classes, spanning all four fields of anthropology, at these institutions has been a lot of fun. But clearly, my blog production (which was never great) has slowed down.

If you’re interested in smaller doses of my scientific earnestness and geeky anthro enthusiasm – or want to share your ideas/discoveries – please check Facebook (Jay Fancher) or Twitter (@jfancherphd).

Go Anthro!
