The Prehistory of Wallingford: Preliminary Results of Two Recent Excavations
|Lecturer: Gerry Thacker|
|Date: 15th January 2019|
|Time: 5.30pm – 6.30pm|
|Place: Rewley House|
The talk will look at the prehistory (Neolithic, Bronze Age and Iron Age) of Wallingford in the light of recent excavations at both Slade End Farm and Winterbrook. Of particular interest are a newly revealed middle Bronze Age agricultural landscape with especial reference to a number of unusual human burials, and extensive Iron Age settlement including a double pit alignment, waterholes and dense clusters of roundhouses.
