Tales of the Riverbank – A talk by Derek Roberts

Talk Overview

A boy’s interest in the past is, unbeknownst to him, sparked while visiting gravel pits managed by his father.

Years later he finds himself revisiting, and then exposing our past when asked to carry out archaeological works at some of the same places he played as a child!

The Speaker

Derek Roberts has excavated extensively throughout Britain and has experience of all periods. He is a specialist in excavation and fieldwork surveys with a BSc (Hons) degree in Archaeology from the University of Sheffield. Over the last 30 years he has carried out numerous surveys and contractual archaeological project work in various parts of the UK. Derek specialises in initial on-site excavation and survey work, providing efficient profiles which enable developers and building contractors to fulfil their archaeological requirements.
