The Bernard Rawes Lecture

Malcolm J Watkin: Birdlip Grave Group!

The Birdlip Grave Group was discovered by workmen in 1879. In a triple grave the central figure was accompanied by a number of important items including one of the best-preserved decorated mirrors from the Iron Age. This profusely –illustrated talk looks closely at the objects, revealing secrets not usually noticed. Malcolm J Watkins has examined the finds more closely than perhaps any other living person and mounted a major exhibition in 1991, in which he made a number of suggestions about the nature of the owner and the finds. This talk reviews these ideas as well.
