view Thu, 05/04/2018 - 19:15 - 22:00 DEMG - Nicholas Cope - Importance and History of Ancient Civilisations in Britain

 His extensively illustrated presentation is based on many years of research for his book, 'The Knap of Howar and The Origins of Geometry'. The Knap of Howar is a remarkably well-preserved Neolithic 'dwelling' constructed about 3,500 BC on the remote Scottish island of Papa Westray, Orkney. Nicholas demonstrates that geometry informs the design of this 'crude' building and describes this within a symbolic context.

 Wimborne Minster is steeped in the most surprising history. Both ancient and modern – it seeps from the very fabric of the place – it is a town rightly described as a jewel in Dorset’s crown and likened to a near perfect cathedral city in miniature.

view Thu, 05/07/2018 - 19:15 - 22:00 Hidden Patterns in the Dorset Landscape - Jonathan Harwood - DEMG

 The positions of churches in the South Dorset landscape, when connected together by drawn lines (church symbol to church symbol on the 1:25,000 scale map of South Dorset) reveal deliberate meaningful patterns. Jonathon will be describing and analysing these patterns. The hypothesis is explored that these patterns were created in the late Roman period and that, where parish churches now stand, there were once early Christian sacred sites.
