This month's talk to The Wallingford Historical and Archaeological Society (TWHAS)
will be by Brian Durham. He will present 'Publishing the 1980 Regal dig, and the
case for 10th century Anderson shelters.'

Brian is the former Archaeologist for Oxford City Council, who led a TWHAS team
in 1980 in a major excavation in the front courtyard of the old Regal cinema in St
Martin’s Street (now under the Wallingford Bookshop). The dig was much visited
by the public who peered over the fence and threw coins into a bucket which helped
a lot to fund it. A semi-sunken Saxon/Viking house and well were found and the
report from the 1980 ‘Regal dig’ is finally about to be published.

Brian's talk will show that pre-Conquest English towns are beginning to pose original questions, meaning that the re-visiting of the `Regal' excavation records at this stage is all the better for thirty-odd years maturing.

This talk will be held on Friday 11th Oct, 7.45 for 8.00pm at Wallingford Town Hall.
Visitors (£3) are most welcome. << Go Back
