It hardly seems possible that the time of year has arrived to send out the 2015-2016 Programme.  It is a preliminary programme as further trips and another lecture are to be added. (You can view the programme here...)

There is a very interesting display of the conserved finds from The Staffordshire Hoard at the Birmingham Museum.  After Dr. Leslie Webster showed some of the fragments and larger items of Anglo-Saxon metalwork in her fascinating lecture last year, I thought some members might be interested in going to see this exhibition.  One of the conservators would give us an introductory talk, but it would have to be on a weekday.  EMAS could hire a coach to Birmingham or we could meet at New Street Station, having made your own way to Birmingham by train.  Please let me know if you would be interested in this visit to Birmingham Museum.

The 2015-16 membership is due in October 2015.  We hope you will decide to renew your membership, as we value your participation in the Society.  Membership remains £15 for one person and £20 for two persons at the same address.  We look forward to seeing you at some of this year’s events.

Many thanks and best wishes,

September 2015
