A familiar face is returning to the North Hertfordshire Archaeological Society on Wednesday to speak about the landscape around Baldock.

Gil Burleigh – who used to be honorary field officer for the society, among other things, but is now an independent archaeologist – will speak about Baldock as an Iron Age and Romano-British sacred landscape during the talk at the Letchworth Free Church’s small hall on Wednesday evening.

Gil works for various publications now, and of particular interest to North Herts readers is the next one, due out next year from the British Museum.

It reports on the excavations, in which many society members took part, in and around Ashwell concerning the hoard of Romano-British temple treasure and the goddess Senuna.

His talk starts at 8pm on Wednesday evening. Entry is free for members and £4 for non-members.
