'Eastbourne Ancestors - A story of life from bones of the past'

Jo is the Heritage Officer at Eastbourne Borough Council and organised the Eastbourne Ancestors project. The aim was to identify the gender and age of each skeleton in its collection. Detailed scientific analysis of more than 300 skeletons of people who lived in the south of England thousands of years ago has undertaken by scientists and archaeologists. Testing of the bones and teeth has identified the national or regional origins, age, gender, state of health, diet, and in some cases, how they died.

 'The Garum and Salt Industry in Northern Gaul during the late Iron Age and Roman periods'

Garum is a condiment made from the fermented blood and innards of selected fish. Being a condiment, it was something which was added to food after cooking, much as we might use soy sauce or tomato ketchup - it was the diner who used it, not the cook. James will discuss the French Garum industry and particularly that of the Atlantic coast during the Late Iron Age and Roman periods.
