David is Academic Director of the Sussex School of Archaeology and former Director of the University College London Field Unit. He specialises in Roman archaeology and is particularly known for his excavations of several major Roman villa sites in the South-East of England.

A site at Lightwater was dug by Geoff Cole for Surrey Heath Archaeology and Heritage Trust back in the 1980s. It was found to be an IA/RB site with good evidence for ironworking, still regarded as of more of local importance.
The Carausian revolt of AD 286–296 was a fascinating period in Roman history during which Britain and northern Gaul were ruled by Carausius, a Roman naval commander, who declared himself emperor.
We are pleased to welcome Paul Booth who will talk about the Roman settlement at Dorchester on Thames.
This year the Roman Studies Group celebrates its 20th anniversary and we are pleased to celebrate this event with a talk by Joanna Bird on the Colchester Vase. This will take place prior to a short AGM.
