Archaeology of the Low Weald – Old Ideas and Recent Finds
A talk by Dr Judie English
Until recently our understanding of man’s use of Wealden resources was largely limited to finds of scatters of worked flint, Roman artefacts and traces of iron working in Iron Age and Saxon times.
Latterly, finds show occupation from the Mesolithic period, farming in the Late Bronze Age, the Middle and Late Iron Age as well as large-scale land organisation by the Middle Saxon period.
The talk (open to all) will be followed by a short AGM at 8:30 for members only.
Future evening talks at 7:30, Brighton Road Baptist Church, Horsham, RH13 5BD:
