Other forthcoming events
Attached below are the events programmes for a range of archaeological societies in the South Midlands. These societies’
events are open to non-members, although a small charge is sometimes made. Further events are listed by date below.
The Grey Literature Problem: St Leonard’s Church Hall, Wallingford, Oxfordshire, Saturday 6th September 2014
The Council for Independent Archaeology is holding a meeting to discuss how local societies can help to locate, share and use
the 'grey literature' — the huge amounts of unpublished developer-funded reports — for their area. There will also be reports
of work by local societies, and an opportunity to hear about and possibly visit Wallingford, a major Saxon and early medieval
town, much of which is still open ground. Bob Randall will also be speaking about the new CR/CIA resistivity meter. Tickets
will cost about £20, including lunch. For further details, click here.
The Archaeology of First World War Trenches: Marlow and Berkhamsted
Main Hall, Liston Hall, Chapel Street, Marlow, SL7 1DD: Thursday 18th September 2014, 8pm
David Greenwood and Norman Groves will examine the archaeology and impact that training trenches had in Marlow and
Berkhamsted, in a talk which has been timed to coincide with the 100th anniversary of the commencement of the First World
War. The talks will provide an interesting comparison of the visible remains of the impact of World War One on the two
communities. Members of Archaeology in Marlow £4; non-members £5.
