It will be themed "Together for Archaeology", and will take place across two venues: Bath Guildhall and the historic rooms at the Roman Baths.

We are delighted to have a range of speakers for this event including from English Heritage, Bristol Museums, and the Portable Antiquities Scheme (Gloucestershire and Avon). There will be opportunities to network and and to learn in groups.

“Archaeological collections can offer unique and positive engagement opportunities – they can bring communities together and provide innovative ways to understand our place in time.” - Gail Boyle, Senior Curator (Archaeology), Bristol Museums (forum speaker)
