Historical Society: The Land of the White Horse

David Miles will talk on: ‘The Land of the White Horse’

Who made the White Horse, when and why? And how has Britain’s oldest piece of land art survived for millennia – through dramatic changes to the land, to language and religion? DM will examine the changing meanings of the Horse and the attitude of antiquarians, local people, writers and artists to this marvellous image and the landscape around it.

David Miles was the Director of Oxford Archaeology and the Chief Archaeologist at English Heritage. Since his retirement he has concentrated on writing: The Tribes of Britain, The Tale of the Axe and recently The Land of the White Horse. He now lives in Kent and the south of France.

The meeting will be preceded by a short AGM – an opportunity for feedback and sharing ideas about future talks, research and outings, and for you to stand for the Committee. We shall also collect members’ subscriptions before the meeting, so do, please, come in good time.

Visitors and new members are always very welcome to our talks and outings.
Margot Metcalfe, Chairman
