A public lecture by Professor Mike Fulford CBE, University of Reading, to the North Hertfordshire Archaeological Society (NHAS) based on his long-running archaeological excavations in the Iron Age and Roman town of Silchester, Berkshire.

Silchester originated as a town about one hundred years before the Roman Conquest, as did similar places such as Baldock, Colchester and St. Albans. Prof. Fulford will describe and discuss the development of Silchester into a town and the reasons why, and will compare its development with other similar settlements.

Doors open at 7.30pm and attendance costs NHAS members £3 and non-members £5.
