Talk - Sturton On a Roman Road to Nowhere? (Sturton-le-Steeple)

Wednesday 4th July, 7pm at Sturton Village Hall, in the conference room.

Emily from NNC Coummunity Archaeology and her colleague Lorraine will first present a talk on Sturton le Steeple. This will look at what they know about the development of the village, its possible relationship to the Roman town of Segelocum, and how the area fits in to the national Roman picture. The aim of the evening is to hopefully get moving on a potential archaeological project in the village, looking for the Roman road and clues to the village's origins.

After the talk they will look at identifying plots of land where people might be happy to have a small test pit, and land which could be field walked or subject to geophysics, or other archaeological investigation. They will also take down the names of people interested in helping out with any digging or fieldwalking.

Lastly they will be doing our best to identify any finds that people bring along. We know very little about Sturton and the surrounding area, and hopefully by plotting on a map where people have found different things we can start to build up a proper picture.
