The Story of Roman Worcestershire

    • 27th March 2013

    Wednesday evenings 7:30-9:30

    24 April – 29 May

    At the end of April we will running a series on six talks in which our archaeologists will help you discover the story of the Romans in our county. It will start with the excavation on the site of The Hive, where the series takes place, which transformed our understanding on Roman Worcester. We will also  explain the latest discoveries and finds from around the county, and cover the environmental evidence which helps us understand what the landscape was like and what people ate. Where possible we will have artefacts from the digs for you to have to have a look at.
