Former Abbey Curator Returns With Roman Villa Talk

A former curator of the Abbey Museum will return to Shaftesbury next week to share some of her discoveries following an archaeological dig at a major Roman Villa.

Nancy Grace is now The National Trust’s locally based finds expert. She spent part of her summer at Chedworth Villa, near Cirencester. Some people have suggested that part of the site was used as a ‘Roman Travelodge’. Nancy says it’s certainly sizeable.

Nancy Grace’s lecture ‘Chedworth Roman Villa: New Discoveries of Summer 2018’ has been arranged by Shaftesbury & District Archaeological Group and will take place at 7.30pm on Tuesday, 8th January at St Peter’s Hall on Gold Hill.
