Britain’s Hidden Treasures with American Anglophile and Cultural & Relocation Consultant Claire Evans

Tuesday, September 26, 7 p.m., G129, Stanley and Blanche Ash Technology and Learning Center, MCC’s Greenville campus

During a walk on his family’s farm during COVID lockdowns in 2020, a man noticed unusual pottery shards that ultimately led to the excavation of one of the largest, best preserved Roman villa mosaic floors ever found in Europe. Jackpot historical finds aren’t uncommon in Britain, thanks to its rich history: Viking hordes, Anglo-Saxon treasure, and even King Richard III buried under a city parking lot. Join Claire Evans as she tours the country’s most interesting archeological finds and learn tips if you’d like to visit them for yourself one day.
