Britain’s Pagan Heritage – Prof Ronald Hutton – 2 November 2017

Professor Ronald Hutton is a well-known English historian specialising in the study of Early Modern Britain, British folklore, pre-Christian religion and contemporary Paganism. In this lecture he will show that Britain has one of the richest, most complex and most inspiring heritages of monuments and texts left by pre-Christian religions of any country in Europe.

He will answer the questions of why that is, why that heritage matters; and what difficulties and opportunities it poses for us in the modern world.

Bath Royal Literary and Scientific Institution, 16 Queen Square, Bath, BA1 2HN. Thursday 2 November 7.30pm, with an admission charge of £4 for members (on display of a current BACAS membership card), and £5 for the general public.
