Author Bob Trubshaw will be at the Central library for a fascinating talk entitled The Invention of Prehistoric Sacred Places
 
When we think of prehistoric sacred places just how different are our modern ways of thinking from those of the people who built them?

How much has the myth of the English rural idyll - which gained momentum during the era of early motoring - coloured how we think about ruins and the countryside?

Just what did the phrase 'sacred places' suggest to early societies?
 
Bob Trubshaw has written over ten books, including Sacred Places:
Prehistory and popular imagination. 

He has been visiting Avebury for over thirty years, and has recently moved there. 

Avebury and Stonehenge will be among the places discussed as he sheds light on such questions about the prehistoric sacred places.
 
Tickets are 2 (1.50 concessions) and are available from the First Floor Help point at the Central Library.
 
For more details please phone 01793 463238.
