Roman and Early Medieval Wychwood: New Thoughts and Discoveries
|Lecturer: John Blair|
|Date: January 23th 2018|
|Time: 5.30pm – 6.30pm|
|Place: Rewley House|
This talk explores some new lines of research on the Wilcote and North Leigh area of Wychwood Forest. It proposes a new hypothesis about the position and development of Akeman Street, and its relationship to the North Oxfordshire Grims Ditch. Important new evidence is presented for the role of the Shakenoak villa and its environs in the period AD 400-750.
