Britain’s ‘Forgotten Frontier’
Excavation of Roman and earlier remains
at Whirlow Hall Farm Trust
King Ecgbert School, Dore
Thursday 30th March 2017, 7pm
During 2016 The Time Travellers, a local archaeology group based in south-west Sheffield, led a Heritage Lottery funded project at Whirlow Hall Farm. It included fieldwalking, geophysical surveying and a three week excavation.
Clive’s talk will reveal our new discoveries of Roman Sheffield and the ‘forgotten frontier’ that runs through our city. Other discoveries dating from the Stone Age to Iron Age will also be discussed as Clive takes us on a journey through time.
The Time Travellers will host this event in the main hall of King Ecgbert School, Totley Brook Road, Sheffield, S17 3QU, where finds will also be on show.
Entrance is free and doors will open at 6.30pm when refreshments will be available. The presentation will start at 7pm and last approximately 1 hour, followed by an opportunity to look at some of the artefacts.
Car parking is available at the school. Seating is limited to 300 and as we are expecting a large attendance please arrive in good time to get a seat.
