Talk by Geoff Roles, SIHG, to Surrey Industrial History Group.
'Revolutionary' Ideas: Seeing society in the ceramic technology of the Later Iron Age of Berkshire and Hampshire
Emma Corke, site director of the field excavations at Cocks Farm, Abinger will be talking to us about the latest season of excavation . Magnetometry carried out by the Roman Studies Group showed a mass of features on the hill above the Roman villa site, and excavation has revealed both prehistoric and Roman activity.
Members of RSG will be reporting back both on post-excavtion work relating to Ashtead Roman villa (David Bird), Flexford (David Calow) and Church Meadow Roman settlement site (Nikki Cowlard), and recent fieldwork led by David and Audrey Graham.
Alexis Haslam is a Senior Archaeologist with Pre-Construct Archaeology and has extensive experience of running commercial archaeological sites in London and the South-East. In 2015 he led the investigations on the animal husbandry site at NESCOT in Ewell, which revealed a landscape of Roman chalk quarrying with extensive ritual deposition. Alexis will be taking us behind the scenes of Roman-period commercial excavations in the Historic County of Surrey, including those in Borough High Street in Southwark.
David Staveley is well known to many of us in RSG. He is a computer programmer by day and in his spare time is an archaeological geophysicist studying Roman roads and roadside settlements in Sussex. David has carried out ground penetrating radar at Flexford and has used GPR to identify Stane Street beneath Church Street in Ewell (in conjunction with the Church Meadow Project). He is also the author of Snuffler, freeware geophysics software for earth resistance and magnetometry.
Cobham Remembers is a project run by The Cobham Conservation & Heritage Trust in conjunction with the Surrey History Centre, and is showing the digitally remastered film of original 1916 The Battle of the Somme which was shown in the former Cobham Village Hall in November 1916 .
