Saturday, 23 November: A Local Archaeological/History Day, in conjunction with the local history and archaeological societies.
More details will become available later and letters/emails will be sent to out to historical and archaeological societies. Please contact us if you are a member of a society that would like to take part.
This is a new venture for the MAA. The aim is to provide a venue for local societies to meet and exchange information which adds to our collective historical knowledge. Needless to say the day will be reported in the events section of The Monmouthshire Antiquary and displayed on the MAA website.
There will be two anchor lectures concerning Caerleon.
Dr Peter Guest, of Cardiff University will give an update on the on the recent Caerleon excavations
Dr Mark Lewis curator of The National Roman Legionary Museum will talk about the recent facial reconstruction of the Roman soldier’s skull which can be viewed in the museum on the same day.
Lunch can be taken in the many Caerleon hostelries and morning coffee and afternoon tea and cakes will be available at a small charge in the Endowed School.
Societies will be invited to book a table for the day at a cost of £5 and display information about their association. This cost is aimed at covering the hire of the hall for the day. Societies can also book a period of time to give a short talk about their association and discuss any projects they have undertaken that year.
