Camertonia 43 (2005)
Society has continued to develop and expand. The first Consultancy was a geophysical survey of part of the Approach Golf Course in Bath. The team also extended coverage of the area around Upper Row Farm, Hemington. The Society designed and mounted an Exhibition at Radstock Museum. Excavation at Blacklands continued despite appalling weather and work has continued at BRLSI on the Kingswood School collection and artefacts from other sources. Two projects, Lansdown and Combe Down Roman Villa, are drawing together all the information on these sites. Excursions and lectures have been well attended.
