The Summer Programme consists of activities organised by the Society or those organised by others which may be of interest to our Members.
Malton Museum Lectures
Tuesday 5th September, 7pm- 9pm at Malton Rugby Club. Steve Roskams, Senior Lecturer in archaeology at the University of York, will be discussing the recent excavations at Malton’s Roman Fort.
What did the latest dig unearth? What were the team hoping to find? What more have we learnt about life in the fort or the civilian settlement beyond? What was the most surprising or unusual discovery?
Find out in the fourth of a series of summer lectures organized by Malton Museum, as Steve shares the highlights of, and insights from, this summer’s excavations.
