23rd May 2018:
Last Saturday, staff from Oxford Archaeology were present at Oxfordshire Past, the annual meeting organised by the Oxfordshire Architectural and Historical Society of all voluntary history and archaeology societies in the county
Each year the event is hosted by a different society and moves around the county. This year’s meeting was held at the church of St Peter and St Paul in Deddington, a magnificent (if slightly chilly) setting, which more than made up for an inadvertent clash with another historic event taking place simultaneously in St George's Chapel, Windsor.
Ben Ford, a senior project manager at OA, gave a talk about the recent evaluation work for the Oxford Flood Alleviation project, and Julian Munby, OA’s Head of Buildings Archaeology, gave a talk about Norman houses in Oxford, which included a mention of an important recent discovery of a Norman window fragment from our site in Paradise Street.
There was also a stall of books by OA, as well as information about recent sites.
