How I found a Roman Villa (or temple)

Talk by Jo Skerry (She/Her) πŸ‘©β€πŸ‘©β€πŸ‘§β€πŸ‘§

Friday from 5:20 PM - 5:50 PM in Stage A

The Roman archaeological record is far from complete; There are hundreds of high status Roman buildings yet to be located in Britain. I was volunteering in the ambulance service during COVID when I was given a piece of Roman pottery by a patient. With no training (I later embarked on an Archaeology degree ), I started to carefully investigate and record what is now established as an enigmatic high-status Roman building - complete with mosaic, painted wall plaster and hypocaust. My talk will demonstrate some free Web-based tools that you can use to investigate your local landscape (LiDAR, etc.). It will also show you non-invasive ways to survey and record archaeological sites. Finally, I'll have some Roman artefacts to handle.
