February Meeting – Venta Icenorum, Discovering Norfolk’s Lost Roman Capital
For our meeting on February 20th at 2.00pm we welcome two speakers who will be telling us about the latest work and interpretation at the Caistor Roman Project.
Caroline Davison is the Director of the Norfolk Archaeological Trust and has 25 years experience of working within the field of historic buildings and landscape conservation, beginning as a documentary researcher on the pioneering Norfolk Historic Farm Buildings Project at the Centre of East Anglian Studies, UEA, before starting a long and varied career at Norfolk County Council as a conservation officer.
Mike Pinner is Project Manager for the Caistor Roman Project. Mike started digging at the age of 14 with the Salisbury Museum group in Wiltshire. He wanted to be an archaeologist but was told to forget it since he didn’t have Latin! He became a teacher and worked sporadically on various excavations until his retirement as headteacher of Benjamin Britten High School in Lowestoft in 2003. Since 2007 he has worked as a volunteer with the Caistor Roman Project.
This promises to be a fascinating insight into the work of the project over the last few years, so please do come along if you can.
We will be meeting at Needham Village Hall, High Road, Needham,IP20 9LB.
The usual refreshments will be available.
All welcome, members £2.00, non-members £3.00
