Wednesday 28th June: Keith Fitzpatrick-Matthews, newly-appointed North Herts Museum Curator, will give a talk on ‘Bygrave Past – the Archaeology of Bygrave parish’, at St. Margaret of Antioch parish church, Bygrave, off Ashwell Road, near Baldock, 7.30 for 8 pm. Entrance fee £5 per person, including a glass of wine, to raise money for church funds. St. Margaret of Antioch is a simple, undeveloped, Medieval church, isolated next to the remains of a moated manorial enclosure. In 1993 the former N. Hertfordshire Museums Field Archaeology team carried out salvage recording following the lowering of the church floor. Several former floor surfaces were identified, the earliest suggesting a Saxon origin for the church. There was evidence too suggesting that the church lies over a Roman site. The parish landscape contains a wealth of Prehistoric and Roman remains.

Saturday 1st July: Hitchin Historical Society’s History Day, organised by Dr. Gerry Tidy. Our Society has taken a stall so we require volunteers to man it, please (details attached).

Saturday 8th & Sunday 9th July: Volunteer diggers, recorders, finds washers, supporters required for archaeological test pitting in Codicote village. Nicholas Maddex, Chairman of the Codicote Local History Society, has written to me saying,

“Keith Fitzpatrick-Matthews is directing us in this project on Saturday and Sunday 8th and 9th July at various sites around the village. We would welcome support from volunteers from outside the parish. While we have yet to confirm a start time, I would suggest that we aim to meet outside the Goat Inn, 77 High Street, Codicote SG4 8XE, our headquarters for the day, at 9 a.m. If volunteers can please let me know they are coming on this email address, I can revise this if necessary”.nkmaddex

Sunday 16th July: Our Field Trip this year will be to West Stow Anglo-Saxon Village and Grimes Graves Neolithic Flint Mines (details attached). So far we have half-filled the 48-seater coach with NHAS members. Members of other societies and groups are more than welcome to help fill the remaining seats (poster attached).

Current exhibitions and displays

Museum of London Docklands

The most complete range of archaeological objects unearthed by Crossrail, Europe’s largest infrastructure project, will go on display alongside the story of this great feat of engineering in a major new exhibition at the Museum of London Docklands, E14 4AL.

The construction of London’s newest railway, which will be known as the Elizabeth line when services begin in 2018, has given archaeologists a unique chance to explore some of the city’s most historically important sites. Since work began in 2009, the project has undertaken one of the most extensive archaeological programmes ever in the UK, with over 10,000 artefacts shining a light on almost every important period of the Capital’s history.

The wide variety of items on display will explore 8,000 years of human history, revealing the stories of Londoners ranging from Mesolithic tool makers and inhabitants of Roman Londinium to those affected by the Great Plague of 1665.

These finds were discovered in locations as diverse as suburban Abbey Wood in the south east, through Canary Wharf, across to Liverpool Street, Tottenham Court Road and ending in Westbourne Park and Acton. The finds will sit against a backdrop telling the engineering story of the largest infrastructure project currently underway in Europe, with key facts and figures presented throughout.
