Club members and guests will be gathering, this time for a specially extended session to support our current Romans in Hadleigh Lottery project, in groups around tables to record and photograph items found in different areas of our recent fieldwalk and nearby. Hopefully, learning from our October session and recent identifications by professional archaeologists, we will confirm at least some more possibly Roman tile, before the pottery is all sent off for professional identification and dating by Paul Blinkhorn.
