Visit to Portsmouth

Date: Thursday, October 3, 2013
ICON Archaeology Group are pleased to announce an autumn visit to
Monday 21 October
10 am - 5 pm (approximately)

Join the Archaeology Group for their autumn visit, which will give
you the opportunity to hear about two major exhibitions. This event
will not only be a journey through time but will also cover pretty
much everything from dry chalk plaques to wet wood.

Stonehenge--arguably England's most famous tourist attraction--will
have a new Visitor Centre opening to the public in December 2013.
Come along to find out about years of planning that have gone into
the project, how objects were selected, assessed and conserved for
display and have a sneaky preview at some artefacts, when you go and
visit the mount makers workshop.

The afternoon will be spent at the brand new Mary Rose Museum. There
will be talks on the museum building, conserving artefacts for
display and drying of the ship timbers, before you go and look
around the new galleries.

The event is open to everyone and will include:

    A visit to English Heritage facilities in Fort Cumberland where
    you will be able to see the labs, x-ray facilities and the mount
    maker's workshop

    Talks on Stonehenge Visitor Centre


    A visit to the New Mary Rose Museum and galleries

    Talks on the Mary Rose Museum and conservation at the Historic
    Dockyard site

The price: UKP25 per person for a full day

    UKP15 per person for half the day (excluding lunch)

    UKP20 for students (including lunch)

Important: The number of participants is restricted to 35 people due
to meeting rooms' capacity.
