Public Lectures

On November 9th, 2022 our team presented a public event about Lowbury Hill, Oxfordshire as part of Oxford County Council and Goring Public Library’s “Mystery of Lowbury Hill” events programme. Our team contributed a two part lecture on the history and archaeology of Lowbury Hill and a poetry reading of Roland Mathais’ poem Lowbury Hill. This event was generously hosted by Our Lady & St. John’s Catholic Church, Goring-on-Thames and supported by The Friends of the Goring Library.

You can find a recorded version of the lectures and poetry reading here. Recordings of seminars and lectures hosted by the Classics Department at the University of Reading can be found here.
