Join us for an evening of inspirational images from author and photographer, David R Abram. David has spent the past five years capturing views of Britain’s most extraordinary prehistoric sites from above in rare, sunrise light using drones and telescopic poles. Whether Neolithic tombs in Orkney, Bronze Age ceremonial sites in Snowdonia or the entrance graves and cairn fields erected by our ancestors across Scilly, his images reveal forms invisible at ground level, and intriguing connections between the monuments and their varied landscapes. Lively and rich with archaeological insight, David’s talk will cherry pick highlights from his new book, The Aerial Atlas of Ancient Britain. He’ll also be showing new material captured during his stay on Scilly – weather permitting! Signed copies of The Aerial Atlas of Ancient Britain will be on sale at the talk.
