If you came to the first PubhD event on Wednesday, you would have heard Sera Baker’s fascinating talk about her archaeological research into Pompeii.

If you want to learn more about this subject, and see some photographs this time, Sera is doing a longer talk at a fundraiser for The Framework Knitters Museum in Ruddington.

Here is Sera’s description of the event:

Come learn about life in Roman Pompeii & Herculaneum next Thursday 30 Jan 2014 at The Framework Knitters Museum in Ruddington, Nottinghamshire in aid of their fundraising efforts to buy a historical cottage onsite and preserve a part of Nottingham’s industrial textile heritage!

There will be lots of pictures of Pompeii & Herculaneum in this illustrated one-hour lecture. Come ask me about working in the area for the last decade and what you’ve always wanted to know about being a Roman! Starts at 7.30 pm with a question and answer period as long as you’d like! Tickets are just £5 and I promise it will be exciting!

It certainly sounds interesting. And remember, it’s for charity!

See you there.
