Keynsham dig to start 27 August

BACAS is going to excavate in Spinney Close, Durley Hill, in Keynsham from Bank Holiday 27 August till Sunday 2 September.

Spinney Close is south of Keynsham Cemetery on the other side of the main road. Our geophysical surveys there in 2017 not only revealed the true location of part of the Roman building excavated by Bulleid and Horne between 1922 to 1924 but also identified and revealed other buildings, possible boundary walls and other features which may be part of the Roman complex.

If you are a BACAS member who would like to take part, please email Robin Holley, Director of Archaeology, robinholley863@gmail.com.
