High on Burrough Hill the Timeless Rampart Stands, Still.

But what was it like to live there, in the Iron-Age? What evidence and traces do we have that show the habits and routines of daily life on this prominent Hillfort that still dominates the surrounding countryside? In celebration of The Leicestershire Festival of Archaeology, Melton Carnegie Museum will host a special exhibition of some of the most important and interesting finds from the recent Burrough Hill excavations.

Come along on 17th July and hear John Thomas, Director of the Burrough Hill Project talk about the exhibition, the artefacts on display and the results of recent analysis, all of which bring new insights into what life was really like at this monumental and important Hillfort.

Limited places available – please book early to avoid disappointment using our contact details.

Doors open at 7pm. The talk begins at 7.30pm. £4 per person.
