Men of Lead -  A talk by David Joy

An illustrated portrayal of miners rather than mining, looking at one of the most fascinating aspects of Dales life and the way it influenced key mining settlements such as Grassington and Hebden. David Joy looks at how miners gave their all in an age when lead was hard to find, dangerous to extract and yet capable of producing wealth beyond their wildest imagination.
David is a former editor of the Dalesman and author of more than 40 books.

Thursday 1st November
St Helenís Chapel Malham Ė where history meets archaeology
A talk by Dr Victoria Spenceposter_nov18_sml02

St Helenís Chapel, Malham, believed to date from at least as early as the eleventh century, was demolished in 1549 during the Reformation under Edward VI and the site faded from local memory.  Recent archaeological digs have now identified the location of the chapel.  Dr Victoria Spence will elaborate on the documentary evidence that led to the rediscovery of the chapel and outline what the archaeology revealed.
Victoria is a local historian with a particular interest in the religious Reformations of the sixteenth century.
