Wednesday 13 May: Segelocum: Grains of History
The hamlet of Littleborough is all that is now left to mark the location of what was once the large bustling town of Segelocum. Situated at the junction of the road from Lincoln to Doncaster and the River Trent, Segelocum was possibly the most important Roman town in Nottinghamshire.
Lorraine Horsley and Emily Gillott, Community Archaeologists from Nottinghamshire County Council, will present the results of previous excavations from this site, which is often overlooked in studies in the small towns of Roman Britain. Following the talk there will be the opportunity to see some of the material from Segelocum in the University courtesy of Sam Glasswell Curator of Bassetlaw Museum.
Talk begins at 1pm in the Djanogly Theatre. To book your place, please contact the Box Office on 0115 846 7777.
