A Tale of Two Towns – Roman Aldborough and Roman York

The Friends of Roman Aldborough have invited Dr Patrick Ottaway to talk on ‘The Tale of Two Towns’.  Roman York and Roman Aldborough were only about 18 miles apart from each other, how were they different and why two important towns so close?

Come along to our first Saturday afternoon talk at Aldborough Village Hall on Saturday 22nd November 2014 at 2.00 p.m.

All are welcome, admission for FORA members is free and £4.00 for non-members.

Second Catterick Open Day 29th November 2014

Martin Neal of the Highways Agency has informed us that they are holding a second archaeology day at Catterick on Saturday 29th November. Guided walks start at 10.30 am and continue hourly until 2.30pm, and strong shoes or boots are advised. There will be opportunities to speak to archaeologists working on the site, and there is a small display of photos and finds from the recent excavations.

The first “Archaeology Day” they held in May was well worth a visit, speaking from personal experience.  It will be good to see what progress they’ve made. For any further information please contact Stuart Culley, Public Liaison Officer, on 01677 932348
