Presented by Lorraine Horsley and Emily Gillott, Community Archaeologists, Nottinghamshire County Council.
The talk will present the results of previous excavations at the site of Segelocum which is often overlooked in studies of the small towns of Roman Britain. Segelocum was possibly the most important Roman town in Nottinghamshire. Situated at the junction of the road from Lincoln to Doncaster and the River Trent, all that is now left is the hamlet of Littleborough to mark its location.
Following the talk there will be the opportunity to see some of the material from Segelocum in the University Museum, courtesy of Sam Glesswell, Curator Bassetlaw Museum.
