Lecture: The Verulamium Survey - Latest Results

at Marlborough Road Methodist Church and on Zoom

Speaker: Dr Kris Lockyear

Since 2013 the Community Archaeology Geophysics Group (CAGG) have been undertaking surveys of the Roman city of Verulamium using a variety of techniques. In 2022 the team completed the GPR survey of the north-western half of the town that lies within the Gorhambury estate.  Up until 2022 the surveys had revealed the sort of things we expected with the city’s aqueduct being one of the highlights.  The results from the last season, however, have revealed a series of unexpected and remarkable structures.  The talk will introduce the surveys and methods, and conclude with a look at these remarkable finds.

Kris’s passion for archaeology arose from a school trip to Verulamium in 1975. Degrees from Durham, Southampton and UCL led to Senior Lecturer at UCL.  An advocate of community archaeology he founded CAGG which has conducted surveys on over more than 40 sites.
