Bristol and Avon Archaeological Society

Update on excavations in South Gloucestershire

On Wednesday October 12, 2016
Tony Roberts

Illustrated talk by Tony Roberts, Archeoscan.

Archaeologist and BAAS member Tony Roberts will bring us up to date with the results of excavations on two Roman sites between Bristol and  Bath conducted in 2015 and 2016.

The Roman buildings at Doynton have now proved to be an extensive Roman villa in use until the late 4th Century.  The site at Upton Che7ne6 has so far revealed a series of Roman buildings with associated ovens.  The talk will further update a report of the progress outlined in the BAAS Bulletin No.75.

Ample car parking is available in the Cathedral car park, entrance from Worcester Road off Pembroke Road. The 8 and 9 buses both run along Pembroke Road. The entrance to the Apostle Room is on the same level as the car park, under the main part of the Cathedral.

Guests are welcome at a charge of £1.00 per meeting (no charge for members).

All meetings are on the second Wednesday of the month – do note them in your diary now.
