Online Talk: The Archaeology of Hungerford

Wednesday 19 January | 7-8pm | £5 per household | Online (Zoom)


Hungerford is one of the few modern place-names in western Berkshire not recorded in Domesday, though it can be traced back to shortly after this time. Hungerford had a market and fair in the medieval period, and had become an important market town by the 17th century. Find out more and meet members of West Berkshire Council’s Archaeology team (Beth Asbury and Philip Smither) as they delve into the parish’s historic environment and share some of the fascinating artefacts found there by members of the public.

Beth Asbury is West Berkshire Council’s Assistant Archaeologist with responsibility for the district’s Historic Environment Record and outreach.

Philip Smither is the Portable Antiquities Scheme’s Find Liaison Officer for all of Berkshire.

This talk ties-in with the special exhibition ‘Focus on Hungerford’.
