The Remarkable Ancient History of Ham A talk by Gordon Elsden

Did you know that the Parish of Ham originally extended as far as Robin Hood Gate on the other side of Richmond Park, and included all of the Tudor Estate, now in Kingston? Is it possible that one of the earliest hunter gatherer bases in England was established by the river in Ham, some 10,000 years ago? Is it true that one of the first places the Saxons settled in England was by the River Thames by Ham at the beginning of the 5th Century? Gordon Elsden, author of ‘Remarkable Ham—the untold story’ will give a fascinating insight into the prehistoric and ancient events that occurred in Ham, so long ago. There will also be an opportunity to purchase Remarkable Ham—the untold story’ and have it signed by the author. All profits from the talk and book sales will help to support the Museum of Richmond. The Museum will extend its opening times until 7pm on 12 July so visitors will have an opportunity to visit the Museum’s current exhibition ‘Archaeology: Richmond’s Prehistory.’
