We hope you had a fantastic festive period! This is a reminder that the next lecture and AGM will be held on 28 January 2020 and this will be on The Auckland Project: Bishop Auckland and excavations at Auckland Castle by John Castling.
The subject of the talk is as follows:
Since the demise of the mining industry, Bishop Auckland has been affected by economic and social decline. The Auckland Project aims to drive regeneration in the local community, to make for a vibrant community. This vision is built around Auckland (Bishop’s) Castle, whose thousand-year history is being unearthed and interpreted; art; nature; and theatre.”
John Castling is a part-time PhD student at the Archaeology department of Durham University, researching the Roman, post-Roman and Early Medieval period of County Durham. He is also Curator of Archaeology and Social History at the Auckland Project, co-ordinating archaeological work at Auckland Castle and Binchester Roman Fort.
Can everyone please remember that it is also the AGM at the beginning of this lecture and that membership subscriptions are also due for 2020. As per the decision made at the AGM last year, the price of membership has been raised to £15 for a single membership and £25 for a joint membership. Both memberships entitle the members to attend any lectures and take part in any projects that we offer for 2020 (unless stated) and the TAS annual Bulletin (one per joint membership).
We hope to see you all there!
