When a  farmer finds a Second World War plane, complete with skeleton, in a quarry, local archaeologists are called in. At first it all seems fairly straightforward – many American airmen were based in Norfolk and their empty hangars and airstrips, the so-called ‘ghost fields’, can be found all over East Anglia. But it’s not that simple…

We have loved Elly Griffiths’ Norfolk-based crime series about  forensic archaeologist Ruth Galloway ever since the first book, The Crossing Places, and we are delighted to welcome her back to Ely to celebrate the latest installment, The Ghost Fields. Elly is a fantastic speaker and this is a great opportunity to hear her bring her characters and places to life.
