Upton Cheney Excavations : Tony Roberts, Archeoscan : 13th December 2018

The ‘Hanging Hill Excavations’ to the east of Upton Cheyney have been carried out as a training dig by Archeoscan since 2012 when a trial excavation verified the presence of some significant Roman buildings and material of high status.

Archeoscan is a private company founded by Tony Roberts, a former Air Traffic Controller, now a professional archaeologist specialising in providing opportunities for community involvement in all aspects of archaeology on several sites in the South Cotswolds area.

Tony will tell us the results of the most recent digging season and explain the findings. It has been suggested that this site may be associated with the Roman pewter works on Lansdown, which BACAS may investigate further in the future.

All talks are at the Bath Royal Literary and Scientific Institution, 16 Queen Square, Bath, BA1 2HN starting  at 7:30pm with an admission charge of £4 for members (on display of a current BACAS membership card), and £5 for the general public. Pay on the door.
