Francis Pryor has lived in, excavated, farmed, walked – and loved – the Fen Country for more than forty years: its levels and drains, its soaring churches, its magnificent medieval buildings. The Fens is personal story of the authors’ discovery, as both an archaeologist and farmer, of this distinctive, complex, enduring, man-made and little understood landscape.


Francis also looks to the future of the Fens. Combing beautiful prose with nature writing, history and memoir, he investigates how rising seas might affect this flat expanse, whose land often falls below sea-level.


Francis Pryor is one of Britain’s most distinguished living archaeologists, and the excavator of Flag Fen.  He was awarded an MBE 'for services to tourism' in 1999. His popular account of this remarkable site, Flag Fen: life and death of a prehistoric landscape, was revised for a second edition in 2005.


He was President of the Council for British Archaeology from 1998-2005 and has written and presented series for Channel 4 on Britain BC, Britain AD and The Real Dad's Army, a review of archaeological remains surviving from 1940 and has regularly appeared on Channel 4’s Time Team. He is a keen farmer, and lives on a smallholding in the Fenland with his wife.


Francis Pryor brings the magic of the Fens to life in a deeply personal and utterly enthralling way.’ Tony Robinson

Roger Morgan Grenville  - EVENT POSTPONED. NEW DATE TO BE CONFIRMED


Liquid Gold; Bees and the Pursuit of Midlife Honey


Thursday, 30th April at 7:45pm


The Oundle Suite, Fletton House, Oundle

Glapthorn Rd, PE8 4JA


Tickets: £8/£6

Early bird £1 off before 23rd April


After a chance meeting in the pub, Roger Morgan-Grenville and his friend Duncan decide to take up beekeeping. Their enthusiasm matched only by their ignorance; they are pitched into an arcane world of unexpected challenges.


Coping with many setbacks along the way – stings are not even the half of it - they manage to create a colony of beehives, finishing two years later with more honey than anyone knows what to do with. By standing back from their normal lives and working with the cycle of the seasons, they emerge with a new-found understanding of nature and a respect for the honeybee and the threats it faces.  


'Beekeeping builds from lark to revelation in this carefully observed story of midlife friendship. Filled with humour and surprising insight, Liquid Gold is as richly rewarding as its namesake. Highly recommended.' - Thor Hanson, author of Buzz: The Nature and Necessity of Bees


Roger Morgan-Grenville was a soldier in the Royal Green Jackets from 1978 to 1986. After leaving the army he ran a small company developing kitchenware. In 2007, he helped to set up the charity Help for Heroes. This is his fourth book.
