Last Monday evening, we had our first Friends committee meeting with everyone present apart from Rosemary Savage who as a new committee member had not been given much notice of the meeting, and was otherwise engaged.
It was a very rewarding meeting, members of the committee were brimming with ideas and full of enthusiasm for ways of improving the Friends.
We took a photograph of the committee, here they are:
Bryn Walters on 'Roman Towns in North Wiltshire' on Friday 28th November at 7.30pm.
The talk is about how the great significance of Roman
Wiltshire has not been appreciated due to a preoccupation with neolithic
pre-history looking at the three major towns: Durocornovium (Lower
Wanborough), Cunetio (Mildenhall, the principle Roman military site
after the 4th century revolt) and Verlucio (Sandy Lane).
