Memorial for Prof Christopher Brooke FSA
Professor Christopher Brooke, MA LittD FBA FSA, who died in December, was a distinguished Fellow in addition to his achievements as a historian. He was the Society’s oldest-surviving President, a post he held from 1981 to 1984. An important aspect of his presidency was the decision to re-open excavations at Sutton Hoo under the direction of Martin Carver FSA.
The Society's e-newsletter, Salon, published an obituary for Prof Brooke in February (issue 358), and other tributes to the life and work of Prof Brooke were published in both The Telegraph and The Times (among others).
This memorial service at the Society will focus on the impact Christopher Brooke's had as a Fellow and President of the Society, and we hope Fellows, Friends and Family will come together to celebrate his accomplishments.
The event (16.00 - 17.00) will be followed by a drinks reception (17.00 - 19.00).
