EDITION OF CBA FORUM!
A FORETASTE OF WHAT IS
After several years of excavation and research, the Society is preparing a major report on work done at Slack Roman fort at Outlane, near Huddersfield.
The conclusions of the report will challenge many of the accepted theories of what went on at Slack, and for how long there was Romano-British activity on the site.
As a foretaste of the full report, the CBA Forum Journal has accepted and published notes prepared by our members Gerrie Brown and Barry Hobson. They are in the latest edition of Forum.
The article is:-
Brown, G. Hobson, B. 2012
Notes on New Dating Evidence for the Roman Settlement at Slack, Huddersfield, West Yorkshire.
Archaeology Forum Journal: CBA Yorkshire 1, 105-107.
