If you are interested in the archaeology or local history of Gloucestershire, join us, at Gloucestershire Archaeology (GlosArch), and help to discover the past. Whatever your experience you can participate in excavations, fieldwalking, geophysical surveying, document research and historic building recording. There are lectures and site visits to attend and help and advice given on finds processing and pottery, coin and artefact identification and recording.
There appears to be a demand for more group fieldwork opportunities. In response Tony Roberts has been appointed Committee Fieldwork Coordinator and will work closely with Ann Maxwell, the existing coordinator.

The Bernard Rawes Annual Lecture
Dr Alex Smith: Settlement in Roman Britian
A major new research project is currently underway at the University of Reading, drawing on data from largely un-tapped ‘grey literature’ and marrying it with published material to significantly improve our understanding of the Romano-British countryside.
This talk will discuss the progress of this project to date, especially as it relates to southern Britain, revealing exciting new patterns emerging in areas such as settlement, agriculture and ritual practices.
