Margary Memorial Conference

Events: 
Groups: 
Periods: 

The Roman Roads Research Association is proud to host two conferences to mark the 40th anniversary of the death of Ivan D. Margary, whose name, through his work “Roman Roads in Britain”, has become synonymous with the study of Roman roads. Perhaps his best known legacy is the numbering system he devised for Roman roads which is still in general use today. In all, his contribution to British archaeology has been profound, and, we feel, not given the national recognition which it deserves.

Marvellous Metal Detecting

Events: 
Groups: 

The next Museum kids Club is Metal Detecting!

Towards the end of the 1960s a new technology appeared that would change the finding of objects from the past to the mainstream public. The hobby of metal detecting had been born.

Early metal detectors were quite rudimentary. Their basic design gave them the appearance of a simple transistor radio attached to a stick with a small coil on the end.

Groups: 
Periods: 

 The first day of the Battle of the Somme, 1 July 1916, claimed 57,540 British and Commonwealth casualties; 2 for every yard of the battle front. Just 141 days later, when the offensive ended, a huge total of 420,000 Allied men had been killed or wounded, including 70 men from Epsom and Ewell.
