Festival talks by William Poole

7. JOHN AUBREY

Generously supported by
DOUGLAS AND MIDGE CONNELL

John Aubrey was one of the best-connected scholars and antiquaries in the great decades of the British scientific revolution. A Broad Chalke resident, he was renowned as one of the fathers of English archaeology for his work at Stonehenge and Avebury. Dr William Poole, co-editor of Aubrey’s complete correspondences, will provide an expert guide to his many diverse achievements as an all-round virtuoso.

This is the first in our series of talks on the Chalke Valley History Heroes – look out for the others on Cecil Beaton, Anthony Eden, William Golding, Henry Lamb and Terry Pratchett.
