An Evening with Dr. Patrick Greene OBEDate: Saturday 25th September 2021
Norton Priory is well-known for the community archeaological excavations which ran from 1971 to 1987. These excavations were overseen by Dr. Patrick Greene, and to this day are often talked about by our visitors.
Patrick, who now leads EPIC, the Irish Emigration Museum, will be returning to Norton Priory to share his memories and discoveries during his time at this site. This special evening talk, organised as part of Halton's Borough of Culture celebrations, will start with a beef hotpot supper (vegetarian option also available), prepared by the chef from our onsite cafe.
Supper will be served at 6:30pm, with the talk starting at 7:00pm.
Tickets are £12 per person, with a special price of £10 for members of Norton Priory Museum and Gardens.
You can purchase tickets from the Art Tickets website. Please select the correct ticket for your food preference on the evening.
From Monday 13th September until Friday 1st October Norton Priory has resumed its collaboration with the University of Liverpool’s Department of Archaeology, Classics and Egyptology to uncover more of the site’s secrets in new excavations directed by Professor Harold Mytum and Dr Rob Philpott.
This year we are hoping to shed more light on the extensive medieval moat system and locate the Canons’ burial ground. Over eighty undergraduates will be learning an array of archaeological techniques whilst uncovering more of the site’s past.
