Summer Evening Talks – Dorchester’s Roman Town House

Monday, June 20, 2022

Steve Wallis, Senior Archaeologist for Dorset Council, will present this talk about Britain’s only fully-exposed Roman urban domestic household.  It was found during the construction of County Hall in Dorchester in the 1930s and has been on display ever since.  The talk will explain the site’s history from Roman times to the present day, including the recent project that has improved access to the remains and a lot more, and will also put the Roman Town House into its wider context.

The talk will be held in Hope United Reformed Church at 8 Trinity Street.  Doors open at 6.30pm and the talk will begin at 7.00pm.

Tickets will be available on the door and are £2.00 for members of the Friends and £3.00 for visitors. (Exact change would be appreciated, if possible).
