Ffrith and Time Team revisited!

Happy Phil Harding! © Jane Amos

CPAT were invited to give the annual lecture at Ffrith Community Councilís AGM and it was agreed that an illustrated talk about the TimeTeam excavations in the village undertaken in April 2005 would be of widest appeal. Jeff Spencer guided the audience through the excavation report written by Wessex Archaeology and presented the results of the project. The features excavated suggested the presence under the village of a Roman building of relatively high status accompanied by other, smaller buildings within a walled enclosure. The finds suggested the buildings were in use in the 2nd and 3rd centuries AD. The evening ended with an appeal for the people of Ffrith to give CPAT advance warning of any building work in the village to give archaeologists another chance to learn more about their fascinating village.

Dear Jeff,

Just a short note to thank you once again for taking the time and trouble to visit us in Ffrith. Your talk was greatly appreciated by all those who attended and certainly brought to life the necessarily rather detailed and dry content of the Wessex report.

Thanks, Jane Amos, Ffrith Community Council.

Jeff Spencer, July 2009
