An illustrated talk by Janet Pennington on ‘My Archaeology Childhood’


Local historian Janet Pennington will talk about her childhood memories and influences while growing up. Her father was the well known Sussex Archaeologist Eric W.Holden (1911-1989). On HDAGs visit to the Weald & Downland Museum in the autumn, we saw a reconstructed house based on evidence from the deserted village of Hangleton. This was one of the many excavations he was involved in.

 Roman Dead
Museum of London Docklands
In 2017 a rare Roman sarcophagus was excavated from Harper Road in Southwark; a site that archaeological research has shown was part of a large Roman cemetery. This remarkable discovery will be on display for the first time in a major new exhibition, Roman Dead, which opens on 25th May 2018. This new exhibition will investigate the cemeteries of ancient London, examining the discoveries that were made there and their context within today’s modern cityscape. www.museumoflondon.org.uk
