Archaeological Discoveries at Bath Quays
 
Wednesday 25 January 2017 at 7.30 pm
at the Bath Royal Literary & Scientific Institution
 
Cai Mason Senior Project Officer will be giving a lecture on WA excavations for B&NES Council as part of the Bath Quays Waterside flood defence works. He will talk about the extensive remains of 18th and 19th century industry, commerce and housing, and evidence of medieval activity along the Avon riverside. He will also discuss how Bath Quays developed, and whether its 19th-century reputation as a den of crime, poverty and vice was borne out by the discoveries.
