The conference will officially start at 2.00 pm on the Friday but for those of you interested in helping with the first stages of the kiln building, please feel free to join us on Friday morning. The conference will run to 1pm on the Sunday.

The weekend will include talks on Roman Pottery assemblages from the East Midlands, a visit to the Nottingham University Museum new displays, handling sessions in the Museum and a trip out on Saturday afternoon
All are invited to attend the conference including non-SGRP members (although encouragement to join the group may be applied during the weekend!) Non-residential and day attendance is also possible. All those involved in the archaeology of Nottinghamshire and the study of Roman pottery are welcome and are encouraged to offer short talks on your work and research in the area.
