Tonight’s BAS lecture
The lecture series of two of the many local groups within the CBA North region start this month. Tonight Fraser Hunter, Principal Curator of Prehistoric and Roman Archaeology at the National Museum of Scotland, will be talking to the Border Archaeological Society at Berwick on Scotland’s Early Silver – from Roman Silver to Pictish Bling.

This talk will describe how this precious material helped in shaping Scotland, linking in with the current exhibition Scotland’s Early Silver in Edinburgh. The talk is at the Berwick Parish Church Hall, Berwick upon Tweed, at 7.30.

Wednesday’s TillVAS lecture
Also in Northumberland TillVAS hold their second lecture of 2018 on Wednesday, though this time in a different Wooler venue to normal.

Non-members of either group are welcome to attend these meetings. For more details 
of both these local groups see our Local Societies and Groups website page. (Please let us know of any 2018 alterations to this page).

Roman Archaeology Open Seminars, Newcastle University

CBA North members are invited to attend, if they so wish, the Roman Archaeology Open Seminars series at Newcastle University on Tuesday evenings. This time round they cover topics from carvings on Hadrian’s Wall, the stone heads common across CBA North’s region to Somerset in Britain, and further away again in talks on Gaul and beyond to North Africa.

Details of speakers and their topics can be found in the programme.

These are held on the first floor of the Armstrong Building in the university (opposite the Royal Victoria Infirmary). A directions map for those unfamiliar with the layout of Newcastle University or Newcastle more generally can be found, and downloaded, from here.

Contact and connections in the late Roman and post-Roman Atlantic

CBA North members are invited to attend, and may be interested in, the forthcoming “Contact and connections in the late Roman and post-Roman Atlantic” by Dr Maria Duggan as part of the Newcastle University Roman Archaeology Evening Seminars.

The seminar is to be held on Tuesday, 2 February 2016, in Room 1.06 of the Armstrong Building – where the Archaeology Department is situated – in Newcastle University, Newcastle upon Tyne. It starts at 6 pm.

Further details can be found in the poster attached here. Examples of such pottery have been found from the Mote of Mark on the northern side of the Solway Firth, so does CBA North’s region still remain a blank for such pottery? And if so why one wonders?
