Joan Pye lecture

The ninth Joan Pye lecture was given by Prof. Simon Esmonde Cleary (University of Birmingham), who spoke on Chedworth: excavations and reimaginings at a Roman villa 1864-2018. The lecture looked at recent major advances in understanding of the Chedworth Roman Villa, one of the best known and most-visited in Britain. The next Joan Pye Lecture will take place next year (2020).
