A talk by Stephen Upex to the Fen Edge Archaeology Group (FEAG).

Please note the date and venue have changed from the details given in ‘Conduit’.

The talk is about the Roman fort at Water Newton and how the excavations have changed our views about the development of the area and especially the rise of the Roman town of Durobrivae and the military stuation in Eastern England.

Professor Stephen Upex has written on a wide variety of topics related to British landscape history and archaeology and his interests range from prehistoric settlement, Roman and Saxon farming to medieval open fields systems. He was Professor of Landscape Archaeology at the University of Brunei  from 1996 to 2008 and has published extensively on aspects of South East Asian archaeology and culture. He contributed to several Time Team programmes for Channel Four and has just finished filming a programme on Roman Godmanchester.

All Welcome.
