David R Abram’s ‘Aerial Atlas of Ancient Britain’

Please join us at the Community Centre ion Thursday 22nd Feb, for an evening of inspirational images from author and photographer, David R Abram.

David has spent the past eleven 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 enigmatic megaliths erected by our ancestors on Salisbury Plain, 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 book, the ‘Aerial Atlas of Ancient Britain’ (published Thames & Hudson, with a Foreward by Professor Alice Roberts), which charts the arc of British prehistory from the end of the Ice Age to the arrival of the Romans. He’ll also be sharing sneak previews from his current ‘Barrowlands’ project, revealing forgotten ceremonial landscapes around the country that can still be walked.

This is a rare opportunity to hear David speak in Kent – an experience that is sure to inspire visits to prehistoric sites you already know, and many you don’t!
