Now in its 45th year, the Regional Heritage Centre’s Annual Archaeology Forum has become the premier regular meeting of archaeologists, both professional and amateur, in the North West. Each year sees a range of presentations on current and recent work, from rescue archaeology and large-scale projects to community endeavours. The enthusiastic audience ranges from scholars and practitioners to local societies and members of the public with a general interest. This year’s Forum will be held on Saturday 3 March 2018 at Lancaster University. It will feature papers on Roman archaeology (recent developments at Vindolanda and Chester), early Medieval (St Michael’s in Workington), Industrial archaeology (the Greater Manchester textile mills project) and a presentation on changes to the Regional Archaeological Research Framework. Speakers confirmed so far include Andrew Birley of the Vindolanda Trust, Adam Parsons of Oxford Archaeology North, Michael Nevell of the University of Salford and Sue Stallibrass of Historic England.
