This will be a rare opportunity to hear Mike Bishop speak in Yorkshire and early booking is strongly recommended.

Mike Bishop has had a distinguished career as an Archaeologist & Romanist, excavating among other places, the Roman Fort at Roecliffe near Aldborough along the route of the modern A1, and of course at Chester-le Street. He is also a prolific writer about Roman military equipment; last year he published the ‘The Secret History of the Roman Roads of Britain’ which is well worth a read. Whilst the focus of Mike’s talk will be Roman Aldborough and his thoughts on its place in the road network, the talk promises to be far-ranging covering much of what Mike has to say about Roman Roads in general.
Admission will be free to members of ‘RRRA’ and ‘FORA’. Non-members pay £4.00 at the door. A raffle will also be held with two signed book prizes, kindly donated by Mike Bishop.
