Chedworth attractions

On a visit to Chedworth Roman Villa today we admired the replicas and genuine handling material. We particularly liked Cherry Hubbard as the charming lady of the house. She had researched and made all her own costume and adornments, and presented a great deal of information in an easy and understandable way. See the photos.

Roman coins from Ossett

From the Yorkshire Post

WHEN 10-year-old Andrew Lister found two old coins while digging in 1963, he was worried that
his “treasure” would be taken away.

He kept quiet about his find for 45 years and only recently shared details of his discovery with a local historian, Stephen Wilson.

Mr Wilson says the coins throw a little bit more light on the Roman past of Ossett, near Wakefield, where Mr Lister found them after his family moved to a new house in Deneside, off Kingsway.
