The lost town of Great Chesterford by Maria Medlycott
Followed by AGM

Doors open 7.15 pm; meeting begins 7.30 pm

The ‘lost’ town of Roman Great Chesterford, now entirely hidden beneath fields, was once the second largest town in Essex.  Sited on the Essex/Cambridgeshire border, it and Colchester are the only walled towns in the county. This talk is a summary of a decade’s worth of work in piecing together excavation and survey work to bring this important site to life again.  Maria Medlycott works as an archaeologist for Essex County Council and has a specialist interest in the Roman and medieval towns of Essex.
