The Willis Museum in Basingstoke will be hosting an exhibition ‘Becoming Roman – Silchester a changing town’ in its Sainsbury Gallery and our Chairman, Professor Michael Fulford, has offered to act as a guide to the collection, which will showcase finds from the University’s excavations ranging from the town’s Iron Age origins to its demise at the end of the Roman occupation of Britain.
Places are limited to no more than 20 visitors, who will need to make their own way by train or car, to arrive by 2.00 pm. There is a café and other parts of the museum and the Sainsbury Gallery are available to explore after the guided tour.
Places will be allocated on a ‘first-come, first-served’ basis by email or telephone to Peter Must at firstname.lastname@example.org .: tel 0118 9781671 . A map indicating the location of the Museum will be sent to those who have booked.
