First published in News

The Watford-based South West Herts Archaeological and Historical Society is celebrating its 60th anniversary this year and has been marked the occasion with outings to St Lawrence, Abbots Langley and to Gorhambury, venues first visited in 1954.  

The highlight of the year is "Then and Now", a special conference in Watford on Saturday, Oct 11, about local archaeology during the past 60 years, including the latest excavations at two important sites - The Manor of the More and the Temple of Mithras in London - both first excavated 60 years ago.

Chairman, Laurie Elvin said the speakers were all leaders in their fields, including an Oxford Professor who, as a schoolboy, was a founder member of the society.   

Anyone interested in archaeology or local history is welcome to attend and a booking form with the full programme can be obtained from Watford Museum  on 01923 232297 or by emailing info@watfordmuseum.org.uk.

The group’s usual monthly lecture season starts on October 15, with "Sensing the Iron Age and Roman Past: Geophysics and the Landscape of Hertfordshire".
