HILLFORTS ON THE RIDGEWAY

This month's talk to The Wallingford Historical and Archaeological Society (TWHAS) will be by Prof Gary Lock. He will present 'Hillforts of the Ridgeway: Living with the White Horse '

Gary Lock's talk will discuss the Uffington White Horse within its wider landscape context. Excavations around the Horse within Uffington Castle hillfort, as well as those at Segsbury Camp and Alfred's Castle, two other nearby hillforts, will give an informed view of the ways of life of the people who built and used the Horse in the Iron Age and Roman periods.

Gary Lock is Emeritus Professor of Archaeology at the Institute of Archaeology, Oxford University and he directed the 'Hillforts of the Ridgeway Project' which ran between 1994 and 2000.

This talk will be held on Friday 8th Nov, 8 pm at Wallingford Town Hall.

Visitors (3) are most welcome.
