Next meeting

Tuesday 24 September

John Smith returns by popular demand with a fast moving and interest-rich talk on domestic Roman life in south Somerset. He’ll talk of their houses and how they evolved during their stay here. John dresses up in costumes, this time he is bringing a lady’s costume recreated from one found petrified in a waterlogged rhyne – watch out! He will also bring new revelations about why the Romans really left Britain.
