Festival of British Archaeology Open Days 2012

We are opening up our offices at Maperton between 10am and 3:30pm on the 17th and 18th of July and we would be thrilled to see one and all. This year we will be showcasing a recently excavated Roman site in Bath. Regarded as one of the most significant discoveries in the city for decades, the site in Bathwick charts settlement from the early years of the Conquest to the end of the Roman period and beyond. At its height, we believe the site formed part of a commercial district with small shop units flanking a metalled road. Features include kilns, latrines, pits and hearths. An incredible array of finds including 4,000 sherds of pottery, rare coins, jewellery, glass vessels, militaria and personal items will be on display for the very first time.

We can offer visitors plenty of free parking, free entry and a welcoming smile. For a small donation to our chosen charity ‘Never Give Up’, visitors can also enjoy a cup of tea and selection of homemade cakes including Flavian fairy cakes, Aquae Sulis apple cake, Claudian carrot cake and Britannicus biscuits.

Details of how to find us can be found on our contact page at http://www.contextone.co.uk/contact-us/

We look forward to seeing you!
