Rings, Wings and Spindle Whorls: An Evening with TV Presenter Mary-Ann Ochota and Storyteller Jason Buck

22 April at 6:30 pm to 10:00 pm

Rings, Wings and Spindle Whorls: Archaeological treasures and the stories they tell. With Mary-Ann Ochota & Jason Buck
Join TV presenter and archaeologist Mary-Ann Ochota and storyteller Jason Buck on a unique journey through Britain’s history, telling stories inspired by historical artefacts from the Iron Age to World War 2. This event is brought to you by Heritage Lincolnshire's Layers of History project and we will be celebrating a successful first year with a birthday cake!
Weaving fact, fiction and myth together, Mary-Ann and Jason will reveal the intriguing, exciting and occasionally bizarre stories behind archaeological treasures from Lincolnshire and beyond, both famous and forgotten.
Get ready for an evening of warriors and witches, love and loss, treasures hidden from the Nazis, Viking gods in Saltfleeby, and a hungry cow in Navenby.
Time: Doors open at 6:30pm and the performance starts at 7:00pm. It will be a two-hour performance with an intermission and there will be a bar.
Venue: The Blue Room Lincoln.
Tickets: £13.50 available from our online shop.
