An illustrated talk on the Archaeology of Tattooing is being given by Ken Hamilton, senior historic environment officer, tomorrow (Wednesday) at Lynn Museum.

Why did our ancestors have tattoos? How were they made and what did they look like? This fascinating talk will look at the archaeological evidence for tattooing around the world, from Neolithic Italy to 19th century New Zealand (below).

The talk is at 2.30pm; the cost is £2 including museum admission and advance booking is essential by ringing 01553 775001.
