Talk - From Villa to Village

the role of voluntary archaeology in uncovering Roman, Saxon and Medieval Berkshire

door 6:30

Timed to accompany a special exhibition on 60 years of work by the Berkshire Archaeology Research Group, Still Digging Up The Past, this talk by archaeologist Steve Clark will explore how voluntary archaeology projects have often been at the forefront of expanding our knowledge of Berkshire from the Roman to the medieval period. These centuries saw tumultuous changes to the pattern of local settlement and the exploitation of the landscape. The results from a variety of sites in West Berkshire and beyond will be used to explore what we can reconstruct of these periods and to show how voluntary projects can be best placed to uncover the story.

Second Person Narrative


New Era Players' next production is about You. Written by Jemma Kennedy, Second Person Narrative presents a montage of short scenes which capture fragments of a woman's life, starting from her birth and ending in her 're-assignment' Known simply as You, we see her make friends, develop aspirations, learn about relationships, win awards, buy clothes, make mistakes, discover herself, have some laughs, endure some pain. She is as extraordinary a woman as every ordinary woman. With a witty soundtrack and imaginative set, Second Person Narrative isn't just about You, it is a play for you. It will play at the New Era Theatre on September 6-8 and 11-15.
