A talk by David Roberts, Teffont Archaeology Project. Since 2008 the Teffont Archaeology Project has investigated the landscapes of Teffont Evias and Teffont Magna in south-west Wiltshire. The project works closely with the local community to investigate Teffont's heritage. The project has particularly focused on the complex Roman landscapes of the area, excavating a range of sites providing evidence for a spectrum of activity from the everyday lives of Teffont's Roman inhabitants to the rich tapestry of religious and ritual practice at Teffont's Roman shrine. This lecture will present the project's main findings so far, and plans for the future. This lecture is in the Salisbury Museum Archaeology Lectures (SMAL) series.  SMAL lectures are held on the second Tuesday of the month at 7.30pm from September to April.
