Welcome to the Glastonbury Antiquarian Society Website
The AGM this year will be held on Friday 4th November, at the small hall in Glastonbury Town Hall. The Annual General meeting will commence at 7.00pm. When business is concluded (approximately 7.20pm), there will be a short break after which Dr Richard Brunning, of the South West Heritage Trust, will speak on his latest research findings on the Godney Canoe which is housed in our museum. Samples from the canoe were sent for dating earlier this year and the results will be reveled in the talk. I look forward to seeing you on the evening.
(Dr T.F Hopkinson-Ball, Chairman, Glastonbury Antiquarian Society)
