Romans in the Borough of Swindon Day School

Wiltshire Victoria County History: Sponsored by Association for Roman Archaeology

Saturday, 18 March 2017. Marriott Hotel, Old Town, Swindon. Registration and coffee 9.30 am to 10.00 am, Day School close by 5.00 pm

In 2013 the Association for Roman Archaeology, in association with Wiltshire Victoria County History, ran a very successful Roman Wiltshire Day School, this attracted over 200 delegates and raised much needed funds for the continuation of both the research and publication of the Victoria County History series for Wiltshire. After many requests from ARA members and the Friends of Victoria County History Wiltshire for a similar event the ARA Board are again sponsoring the above event in Swindon. The Day School will cover recent surveys and excavations in the Borough of Swindon ranging from the Thames gravels, Highworth, Purton and Swindon. The Conference will be opened by Mrs Sarah Rose Troughton HM Lord Lieutenant of Wiltshire.
