More on the Wiltshire and Swindon History Centre events

Well, I’m not sure if this piece from the Gazette and Herald adds anything.

A window will be opened on Wiltshire’s Roman past at two events being
held at the Wiltshire and Swindon History Centre to mark National
Archaeology Day on July 19.

There will be a series of Roman-inspired activities for children such
as mosaic making, sorting through real Roman finds and dressing up as a
Roman soldier. Sessions will be held between 11am and 12pm and 12pm and

There will be a talk by Phil Andrews (Wessex Archaeology) and Melanie
Pomeroy-Kellinger (county archaeologist) about recent field work at
Truckle Hill Roman Bath House in North Wraxall at the history centre
between 2pm and 3pm. This will be followed by a tour of the site
between 3.30pm and 4.30pm, although people will need their own
transport to get to and from it, with the journey taking about 20
minutes each way.

Both events are being provided by Wiltshire County Council’s archaeology service together with Wessex Archaeology.

Places at all these events are free but they need to be booked in
advance. To book call Nancy Danks on 01249 705504 or email
The history centre is jointly run by the county council and Swindon
Borough Council to helping people to discover, participate and
contribute to local history.
