Bath Abbey Footprint Project Update – Cai Mason, Wessex Archaeology – 12 December 2019

The Bath Abbey Footprint Project is a Heritage Lottery Fund project to repair the Abbey’s collapsing floor, install a new heating system using Bath’s hot springs, and provide new, improved space and facilities for the Abbey.

Wessex Archaeology is undertaking an archaeological investigation at this significant World Heritage site and has already made many discoveries, including evidence of Mesolithic, Roman and Saxon activity, an exceptional early 14th-century tiled floor, remains of the earlier Norman Cathedral and the unusual contents of a forgotten Georgian sewer.

Following on from his lecture last year, Cai Mason, Senior Project Officer, will give us a further update on discoveries at Bath Abbey as the Footprint project progresses.

All talks are at the Bath Royal Literary and Scientific Institution, 16 Queen Square, Bath, BA1 2HN. Thursday 12 November, 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.
