Home E Blog E Discoverer in Dorset

Listen to our very own Chris Sinkinson as he chats to Steve Harris, BBC Dorset Breakfast, about the man who discovered Ninevah – Austen Henry Layard.

We recently discovered that Austen had connections to Dorset; the home of our Christchurch Campus!

Chris teaches on both our undergraduate and postgraduate degree programmes and has a great interest and experience in archaeology. Listen as he shares part of history and how it links beautifully with the biblical texts and our modern world.
