at St Brieuc, Brittany - an Iron Age town?'
Allen will talk at the Wallingford Historical & Archaeological Society
(TWHAS) about the archaeological excavations at St Brieuc, Brittany.
Senior Project Manager at Oxford Archaeology Limited and has directed and
written up archaeological excavations for OA for over 30 years. He has also
directed research excavations and surveys built around public participation for
the Earth Trust at Little Wittenham.
2009-10 Oxford Archaeology excavated a major late Iron Age settlement at
Tregueux, near to St Brieuc Brittany in advance of road construction.
Stretching over nearly 1km, this consisted of a defensive enclosure, an unique
monumental timber courtyard building, a series of metalled roads and a very
large settlement parcelled up by drainage ditches and with a series of wells
along its line. This is one of very few such `agglomerated settlements', as the
French describe them, in NW France, and mark the start of the emergence of
towns in Brittany. It also provides an important contrast to late Iron Age
settlement in Southern England.
talk will be held on Wednesday 12th April, 7.45 for 8pm, at St Mary’s Church, Wallingford.
Visitors (£4) are most welcome.
