The Origins of Towns in Britain

On Tuesday 7th October 2014, Professor Mike Fulford CBE, from the University of Reading, will be giving a talk to the North Hertfordshire Archaeological Society (NHAS) based on his long-running archaeological excavations in the Iron Age and Roman town of Silchester, Berkshire.

Silchester originated as a town about one hundred years before the Roman Conquest, as did similar places such as Baldock, Colchester and St. Albans. Prof. Fulford will describe and discuss the development of Silchester into a town and the reasons why, and will compare its development with other similar settlements.

All are welcome to attend the talk at 8pm at Letchworth Free Church, Norton Way South, Letchworth Garden City, SG6 1NX. Doors open at 7.30pm and attendance costs NHAS members £3 and non-members £5.
