Recently, Gordon and I attended a lecture by Professor Alice Roberts, the acclaimed T.V. presenter and scientist. We had not realised that before she became a Professor at Birmingham University, she had been a G.P., who then went on to specialize in skeletal medicine. She ran a course for surgeons and was eventually asked to do some examinations for ‘Time Team’ and it’s archeological digs. That led her to presenting and the B.B.C. have used her many times for her excellent presentation skills.
Her current book is about her fascination with embryology, but on our visit to her lecture we were able to give her a signed copy of ‘Where Rowans Intertwine’ and tell her it was about the Celts at the time of the Roman occupation.
She was very gracious and promised to read it. We had her sign a copy of her book based on her research to find the origin of the Celts….’The Celts – Search For a Civilization’. I am two thirds through reading the copy we bought from her and am relieved to say that nothing contradicts my own research undertaken so many years ago. We do hope she is fascinated with what Ceridwen has to tell her.
