THIS EVENT IS NOW FULL
FRAG has arranged a rare opportunity to view the Roman mosaic which was discovered in 1821 during excavations in Castor. The mosaic was re-laid in the ante-room to the dairy at Milton Hall. At that time local antiquarian, Edmund Artis, was working as House Steward for 4th Earl Fitzwilliam.
We will be accompanied by Dr Stephen Upex who will provide background on local mosaics, Roman villas, and the role of Edmund Artis in their discovery.
Physical space is tight so the maximum number of attendees will be 25. The outline plan is for the us to meet at about 10.30am, with the option after for a pub lunch.
FREE for FRAG Members – £5 for Non members
