THE CORBRIDGE LION
A celebration of the 100th anniversary of his discovery
One Saturday in the summer of 1907, Leonard Woolley, the director of the Corstopitum excavations, went to the bank in Corbridge to get his men's wages. When he came back, he discovered that his diggers had unearthed something truly remarkable...
This is a dayschool to celebrate
the discovery of the Corbridge Lion, with a variety of illustrated
talks (and a practical demonstration) designed to make you look at the
most famous sculpture from Roman Corbridge in new ways. All are welcome.
