1-2pm

Institute of Archaeology Lecture Theatre G06, 31-34 Gordon Square, London, WC1H 0PY

Sir Mortimer Wheeler

Archaeologist Sir Mortimer Wheeler was an early television star but his contribution to British archaeology has been overshadowed by his personal charisma and media success.

Katie Meheux, Deputy Librarian at the Institute of Archaeology Library, revisits his work using his letters and personal papers to show his energy and authority, his work at the Museum of London, in India, and his concern for the protection of monuments in war zones.
