Roman temples on your doorstep
Discover more about Gloucestershire’s Roman temples at an evening talk, taking place at the Corinium Museum, Cirencester, on Thursday 28th September.
The first in a series of monthly evening lectures, running from September 2006 to June 2007, the talk will be given by Dr Alex Smith, Senior Project Manager for Oxford Archaeology.
Using local examples, including two of the most important excavated Roman temple complexes in Britain - Uley and Lydney Park - Dr Smith will look at the development of sacred space from the Iron Age into the Romano-British period.
Less well known sites, such as a small shrine at Claydon Pike and a possible religious site at Hailey Wood Camp, Sapperton, will also be included.
The lecture runs from 7pm – 9pm and tickets cost £5 with a 10% discount for Museum annual season ticket holders. Please contact the Corinium Museum on 01285 655611 to book a place.
