Event description

Description

Join Dr Andy Russel, Archaeology Unit Manager for Southampton City Council, on a verbal tour of the medieval south coast’s major port.

The town had no industry: the main trade was exporting wool and importing wine. But goods from the known world arrived in the ships of many nations on Southampton’s quays to be sent out across England or on into Europe. Port Books and local tax records allow us to reconstruct the trade and investigate the lives and business networks of the families who lived here, and the numerous archaeological digs allow us to handle the goods themselves.

This talk will last for approx. an hour, with the opportunity for questions after.

Talks are suitable for 16+ years and take place in the John Chandler Activity Room, in the Visitor Centre.
