One Book One County Closing Event

One Book One County Montcalm presents “Britain’s Hidden Treasures” on Sept. 26 at 7 p.m. in room G129 in the Stanley and Blanche Ash Technology and Learning Center (Ash TLC) on Montcalm Community College’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.

“Downton Shabby” by Hopwood DePree is this year’s One Book selection. Visit for more information.
