Event description

Description

The historic market town of Oundle nestles in a bend of the River Nene in Northamptonshire. Occupied since at least the Iron Age, the Romans also built a small town near the old railway station on the north side. Dr Stephen Upex will survey the surrounding landscape and show how successive waves of settlers have influenced how it looks today.

Steve has written extensively on the archaeology of the Nene Valley area and wider East Midlands areas. His excavations locally include the Roman town of Ashton, the Roman fort at Water Newton, and an Anglo-Saxon site at Polebrook. He was previously Professor of Landscape Archaeology at the University of Brunei, and is currently a Professor at Cambridge University, as well as an independent archaeological consultant.

Doors open at 7:00PM, ticket price includes 1 free glass of wine or juice, and further glasses of either can be purchased.
