Andrew Armstrong will be presenting a talk as part of this year’s Gloucester Festival of Archaeology at the Gloucester Guildhall: commencing at 6pm on Thursday 25 July 2023. Andrew’s talk will outline the results of a series of excavations which have recently been undertaken at Gloucester Castle, a site of considerable importance during the Norman and Medieval periods. Gloucester Castle served as both a strategic defensive location and a key bridging point, from which traffic along and across the River Severn could be effectively controlled. This event has been supported with grant aid from our society.
Tickets for this event cost £6 each and are available from the Gloucester Festival of Archaeology’s organising committee via the following link: tickets
