Tony Roberts, Archeoscan

The ‘Hanging Hill Excavations’ to the east of Upton Cheyney have been carried out as a training dig by Archeoscan since 2012 when a trial excavation verified the presence of some significant Roman buildings and material of high status.

Archeoscan is a private company founded by Tony Roberts, a former Air Traffic Controller, now a professional archaeologist specialising in providing opportunities for community involvement in all aspects of archaeology on several sites in the South Cotswolds area.

Tony will tell us the results of the most recent digging season and explain the findings. It has been suggested that this site may be associated with the Roman pewter works on Lansdown, which BACAS may investigate further in the future.
