Uncovering the buried past beneath the HS2 rail line
A ONE-DAY CONFERENCE – WITH TICKETS IN ADVANCE
SPEAKERS: Archaeologists working for HS2 on their recent finds
Prehistoric boundaries, a Roman town, a deserted medieval village, a ruined chuch and an ancient burial ground... This will be a full day of first-hand accounts from the archaeologists who are carrying out excavations ahead of the construction of the HS2 high-speed rail line across Buckinghamshire.
The opening session of the conference will also put the HS2 rail line into the context of Buckinghamshire's history and landscape, while its closing session will look at the local response when the railways first came in the 19th century – and their effects.
