Periods: Prehistory, Romans
Talk or lectureGuided walk or tourExcavation visit

Introductory talk, finds, guided walk and excavation site visit.
The Time Travellers Archaeology Group will be running two introductory sessions on the recent Roman and prehistory discoveries at Whirlow Hall Farm Trust. Following the initial discovery of the Roman site during 2011, the group gained a £60.000 HLF grant to return to the site, to further excavate its Roman and Iron Age remains. Field walking and geophysical surveys expanded our knowledge of the areas prehistory and discovered the site of a Roman signal station on what was until recently a forgotten Roman frontier.
