The Roman Finds Group Autumn Conference

Town and Country in Southern Britain

Friday 9thSaturday 10th September 2016

The 2016 Roman Finds Group Autumn Meeting is based in Reading and will be a two day conference from the afternoon on Friday 9th September until late afternoon on Saturday 10th September. It will be kindly hosted by the University of Reading’s Archaeology Department and will take place in both the atrium of the Archaeology Building and the Ditchburn Theatre on Whiteknights campus.

The conference comprises five sessions of papers with eighteen talks covering various aspects of finds from the town and country in southern Britain and is an excellent opportunity to hear about recent finds and research in this region. As well as sessions on Research at Reading, London and Urban and Rural Britain, a quick-fire session entitled ‘Small Finds, Short Papers’ including five ten minute talks will take place. Research posters covering a wide range of topics and an artefacts table with finds from the excavations at Silchester will also be displayed during all tea and coffee breaks. Registration will take place in the Archaeology Building’s atrium, so please confirm your attendance there first before making your way to the Ditchburn Theatre.

We are delighted to announce that the conference’s Keynote Presentation will be given by Nina Crummy and Matt Phelps on Friday the 9th who will discuss their ongoing work on the Colchester Hoard.

Previous RFG meetings in Newcastle and York were oversubscribed so early booking is strongly advised. The cost of the meeting is £40 for RFG members, £33 for students, £48 for non-members and a £25 day rate.

Further information about speakers and registration information can be found on the Roman Finds Group's website.
