This lecture marks, almost to the day, the 50th anniversary of Peter Liddle’s first archaeological excavation in Leicestershire and the talk ‘50 Years of Leicestershire Archaeology’ will look back on how archaeology has changed in that time and at some of the highlights of discoveries in Leicestershire and Rutland over the last 50 years.
