The trip to Silchester ( as I guess everybody knows ) was unfortunately cancelled owing to heavy rain at the site, but the good news IS that Roger Ayres is coming to give a talk -with many slides- to the Archaeology group on the 25th. of January. This will probably whet the enthusiasm of everyone for a visit next year.
