Avebury would not look as it does today without the work of archaeologist Alexander Keiller who, among other things, was four times married, an expert ski-jumper, driver and collector of fast cars. Learn more about his varied life and work with a lecture by Dr Ros Cleal, the current Curator of Avebury museum. Enjoy a delicious slice of cake and hot drink as part of the lecture.
