In Search of Our Ancient Ancestors Using Records, Surname Origins and DNA - Lecture 20 July
Anthony Adolph will show how record-based research, oral history, study of surname origins, archaeology, fossil-hunting, genetic testing, ancient origin myths and even the science of the Big Bang all stem from our fundamental desire to understand who we are and where we come from, and are all tools that can be brought together for tracing our ancestry as far back as possible.
A one-hour lecture on Wednesday, 20 July (2pm) with Anthony Adolph cost £8.00/£6.40 SoG members. Places should be pre-booked through our website or by telephone: 020 7553 3290. Do you have a question? email the events department.
