This month’s lecture will be presented by Ben Westwood on The Portable Antiquities Scheme in County Durham, Darlington and Teesside’s Recent Finds of Note.
Throughout the past year, over 500 individual artifacts have been reported to the Durham Office of the Portable Antiquities Scheme (PAS), ranging from vernacular buttons and buckles to spectacular medieval and Roman coin hoards. This talk will aim to give more information on some of these important finds and enlighten us to some of the work that PAS does in the region.
After many years of fieldwork, most recently for Durham University, Ben has began to work for the PAS in Durham. His primary interests are the Roman period, colonialism and archaeological theory, he is also interested in the material remains from this period, particularly those from the North East.
We hope to see you all next week!
