The Water Newton Fort: August 2012 Excavations

Dr Stephen Upex

At Flag Fen

Thursday 7 March, 7pm

Archived Event

Adults £8, Concessions and Vivacity Heritage Pass Holders £5


Hear about the discoveries of the first excavation of the Roman fort at Water Newton.

Led by dig director Dr Stephen Upex, the excavation was carried out by the Middle Nene Archaeological Group (MidNAG) and members of Pre Develop Archeology (PDA). Arguably the pre-eminent authority on the Romans in the East of England, Dr Upex will explore what the excavations revealed about the role of the fort, and the implications for the story of the Romans in the Nene Valley, particularly for the site of Durobrivae – one of the UK’s most significant Roman towns!

Refreshments will be available to purchase both before and after the lecture.

All workshops and lectures can be booked through Peterborough Museum on 01733 864663 or museum@vivacity-peterborough.com. Booking is essential for all workshops and strongly recommended for lectures.
