Transition from Late Iron Age to Early Roman in SE England

Following the great success of the 2018 conference on the transition from Roman to Saxon in the South-East, the Roman Studies Group of the Surrey Archaeological Society is arranging another event, this time focusing on the end of the Iron Age and the start of Roman Britain in our area.

In recent years the Group has carried out or assisted on fieldwork at sites such as Abinger, Ashtead, Chiddingfold, Ewell and Flexford, all of which have added important information to our understanding of the period in the years before and after the time when our part of England became formally a part of the Roman Empire. The aim of the conference is to set these discoveries in their wider setting in the South-East.
