What's on?

Wednesday at Bar Hill
 We will be carrying on holding meetings at the Oxford Archaeology East HQ at Bar Hill during May to carry on assessing finds from Ickleton and having tutorials to refresh our memory of specific pottery types from our sites.
 Our lecture series is over for the summer and our next lecture will be held in October.
 We are rapidly approaching our follow up excavation at the Wimpole parterre garden. We start on Sunday 14th July and are scheduled to finish excavating on Sunday 21st July. The following week may be used to finish off and document our work.
