Talk by Dr David Bird -Writing up Ashtead

Tuesday, 3 March, 2020 - 19:30

Dr. David Bird, RSG Chairman and past Surrey County archaeologist, will be giving us an update on his research on Ashtead Roman villa and Tileworks. Surrey Archaeological Society carried out excavations on the site between 2006-2013, but the history of archaeological investigation on the site goes back to the 1920s when AWG Lowther investigated the main villa building and detached bath house. David, in preparation for publication of the project has been examining records, both modern and historic, and his talk will give us a glimpse of what he has found.

The interim reports on the more recent excavations can be found on this website under Roman Studies Group - News and Reports- Ashtead Roman Villa Project 2006-2013.
