The Archaeology of Anglesey

The Archaeology of Anglesey
1 to 5 November 2016

Following the EMAS Easter study tour to the Edwardian Castles in North Wales, several people have expressed an interest in the possibility of an autumn study tour to Anglesey.

Because of the location of some of the site, we would need to use a small coach, probably a 24 seater.  The best way to do this would be that we would meet at Chester Railway station (there is an excellent service from Euston) and a coach would pick us up with our luggage and drive us to our hotel in Caernarfon.  The coach would also take us to Chester when we return to London.

Click here for further details, including the full itinerary.

I will sort out the costs as soon as I can.

The Actual World of Virtual Reality

For several years now, EMAS study tours have included a brochure that gives basic information about the sites visited and can sometimes even help as an aide memoire when you look at the photos that you took on the trip.

Printed brochures are fine, but they have their limitations.  Wouldn’t it be nice if they could include additional material, such as short videos?

Well, thanks to modern technology, they can.

If you have an iOS or Android smartphone or tablet, you can use an amazing free app called Aurasma.

With this app you can view images that have added content and your mobile device will show you the added video.

The brochure that will accompany the EMAS study tour “Castles of North Wales” will be the first of these brochures to include such content.

p.s. if you have followed the instructions on the web page and want to check that everything is working, try viewing the imageat the top of this page.

EMAS Archaeology Study Tour: Landscape of the Bayeux Tapestry

Landscape of the Bayeux Tapestry

21 - 28 May 2016

2016 will be the 950th anniversary of the Battle of Hastings. The famous Bayeux Tapestry that depicts this battle also presents a map of the events that led up to Hastings.

This study tour will follow the route of this map, starting at Westminster and following Harold’s progression through Normandy, and then on to the arrival of William’s forces at Pevensey and finally to Battle, where we will look at the evidence for the suggested new location for the Battle of Hastings.

Full details of this study tour can be found here...

N.B. In order to be certain of a place you need to apply by 1 February 2016  at the latest.
