Sussex and Surrey in Later Prehistory

The adjacent counties, largely mirroring each other on either side of the geological Wealden dome have contrasting prehistories. The South Downs and coastal plain abound with standing monuments and archaeological sites yet the North Downs appear relatively barren. Is the ‘impenetrable’ Low Weald the sole reason?

Replicating history: looking at artefacts through the eyes of the maker

Tess Machling is an archaeologist, and Roland Williamson a Museum Replica Maker. Their work involves looking at archaeological artefacts and understanding their manufacturing techniques so that they can be replicated. In this talk they will discuss the creation of a number of different artefacts from Iron Age gold torcs to Bronze Age Sussex loops and there will be a range of replicas available to examine during the evening.

Mythmakers of Maiden Castle: changing a Roman siege mentality

The idea that an invading Roman army dramatically terminated the hillforts of south western Britain, using artillery fire to defeat their enemy, is one of the most powerful stories in British archaeology. Recent fieldwork on the hillforts, Roman forts and Iron Age burials of Dorset, however, has changed our view of what really happened. In this talk, Miles Russell, co-director of Bournemouth University’s Durotriges Project, will examine the new evidence and outline an alternative model for the Roman conquest of South Western Britain.
