A WHOLE day devoted to studying the landscape of prehistoric times is taking place at Clavering on Saturday (April18).
The Day School, entitled 'In search of the first landscapes', will be tutored by well-known Cambridge historian, Dr Nicholas James.
Dr James will lead a number of sessions, firstly to demonstrate that there are some still some substantial pre-Roman landscapes that can be seen in the landscape today.
He will then look at less obvious but widespread evidence which reflects how social, economic and political life was organised in prehistoric times.

Further sessions will show how this evidence can be interpreted, and how new discoveries can still be made that reveal how much of our landscape was densely populated and very busy thousands of years ago.
The Day School is open to anyone, and no previous knowledge is assumed.
