Council for British Archaeology conferences: March and April 2019

There are two conferences coming up in March/April that might interest you:

Saturday 30th March – Your Roman Past. Ahead of a major new programme of exploration into the Roman town of Durobrivae, near Peterborough, the Nene Valley Archaeological Trust is holding the first in a series of conferences about the archaeology of the Nene Valley and beyond. For further details and to book a place, go to https://www.nenevalleyarchaeology.co.uk/2019-conference-your-roman-past

Don’t forget as well to make a note of Saturday 6th April in your diary: come along to the CBA South Midlands spring conference at Bugbrooke, Northants, which will feature a review of recent archaeological fieldwork within that county. See the programme: Bugbrooke-2019-programme.pdf

Artist gardeners between the Wars – 19th January

Our next lecture – open to all and at no charge – will be on Saturday 19th January at 2.30pm in the Bucks County Museum HP20 2QP. Sarah Gray will talk on Artist gardeners between the Wars: Clare Leighton and John Nash in Bucks. Not just art and gardens but also the pressures on landscape in the 1920s and 1930s from motor traffic and both suburban and rural housing developments. Both artists were part of an early and successful campaign to preserve the view of Whiteleaf Cross from being blocked by commercial housing.

Bucks Garden Trust, Talk 19th January

The first Bucks Gardens Trust talk for 2019 is to be held on Saturday 19 January at the Bucks County Museum in Aylesbury.   This is to be given by Paul Rabbitts, writer and lecturer in landscape architecture, on ‘Bandstands’ … this follows on from a recent lecture on ‘Music Outdoors’ given by Dr David Huckvale.   The talk will start at 2.30pm with tea to follow – at a cost of £12 for Bucks Gardens Trust member & £14 for guests, to include tea.

If you would like to come, and have not already booked, please could you be kind enough to contact Rosemary Jury at rosemaryjury@wendoveremail.co.uk or on  01296 715491.
