Another in the series of readings and lectures Dr Christine Finn is giving in the UK and elsewhere, to mark Jacquetta’s centenary:
A PLACE TO BE: JACQUETTA HAWKES and the ISLE OF WIGHT.
A public lecture by DR. CHRISTINE FINN.
at: The Seely Hall, Brook
on: Wednesday, 29 September at 7.30 pm
supported by The Isle of Wight Natural History and Archaeological Society
After their marriage in 1953, Jacquetta Hawkes and J.B. Priestley lived on the Isle of Wight, at Brook Hill. As Christine says, there “they spent a quiet few years, entertaining close friends and family. They also continued their prodigious output of books, essays, talks and scripts”.
Dr Finn particularly welcomes contributions from those who recall Jack and Jacquetta on the Island, or who were inspired to archaeology by Jacquetta’s works, in particular A Land, which mentions the Isle of Wight in its lyrical description of British geology.
