Year One at Nassington revealed a large stone Roman barn and ancillary features including a corn dryer.

There were many unanswered questions so FRAG members joined forces with MidNAG to excavate again this August.

Director of Excavations, Derek Roberts, joins us to provide first feedback on what we have learned. The talk will consist of new finds and features from the season 2 excavations and thoughts for the future with a brief look at the recently conducted 5 hectare magnetometer survey.

Speaker – Derek Roberts
Derek is co-founder of the contract archaeological unit Pre-Develop Archaeology. After reading Archaeological science at Sheffield University he excavated extensively around Britain with different contract units and had a very brief spell in France. He honed his skills working on urban archaeological sites in Carlisle, London and Greater London and Colchester and now finds himself back where he started excavating in the Nene Valley.
