Introduction to Roman Pottery

23 March at 1:30 pm to 4:30 pm

A two session course FREE to new learners 1:30 - 4:30 pm on Thursday 23rd March and continued at the same time on 30th March at The Old School, Cameron Street, Heckington, NG34 9RW.

Join pottery specialist Alex Beeby, to find out how, when and where pottery was used and produced in Lincolnshire, from the end of the Iron Age until the beginning of the Saxon period.

Discover how the pottery unearthed on an archaeological site can give us fascinating evidence of daily life and trade, as well as clues about the status of its ancient inhabitants.

We will look at how pottery styles and forms in our region changed over time and what this can tell us about Roman people’s everyday lives.

There will be lots of activities and the chance to get hands-on with real Roman pottery discovered on our excavations in and around the county.

Tea, coffee & cake provided.

Booking is essential. For an enrolment form please email htladmin@heritagelincolnshire.org or telephone 01529 461499.

This lifelong learning course is part of the Grow programme organised by the Lincolnshire County Council Community Learning service. We aim to attract new learners and courses are open to all aged 19 and over on 31 August 2016.
