Head back in time at Symposium


Eastbourne’s Ancient Past is the subject of the Eastbourne Archaeological Symposium to be presented by the Eastbourne Natural History and Archaeological Society at the Court Room, Eastbourne Town Hall on Saturday July 19.

Six expert speakers will delve into Eastbourne’s ancient history and reveal recent work on the marshland and downland landscape, the remains of its extensive Roman Villa and Roman 
settlement and Eastbourne’s enigmatic Anglo Saxon history by comparison with excavations at Bishopstone.

Talks will also include interpretations of the 
landscape of the Cuckmere River, the Portable Equities Scheme and Historical research for Archaeology.

Coffee and tea and soft drinks will be available on the day.

Tickets for the all day event, from 9.30am-5pm, are £10 for all.

Tickets may be purchased from the treasurer, 49 Prideaux Road, Eastbourne, from me, Lawrence Stevens at 16 Crown Street, Eastbourne, or via www.eastbournearchaeology.org.uk
