A place of kings: new excavations at the Iron Age ‘oppidum’ of Bagendon, Gloucestershire An Evening Lecture with Dr Tom Moore Thursday 28th November 2013, 7- 8.30pm Many know Bagendon as the Late Iron Age capital of the Dobunni, but what do really know of the purpose of this place? New research and excavations provide tantalising evidence of how this site was crucial to the emergence of new elites in the tumultuous period between Julius Caesar’s raids and the Claudian conquest of Britain. Including discussion of the results of recent fieldwork, this talk will examine the development and role of the Bagendon complex. This will be used to reassess the nature of the Late Iron Age in the southern Cotswolds and the impact of Rome on these societies in the 1st century AD. Cost: £5.65 adult or £5.00 for season ticket holders. Advanced booking is recommended. Contact details: Corinium Museum, Park Street, Cirencester, Gloucestershire, GL7 2BX Tel: 01285 655611
