On Friday 23 February we are delighted to welcome Dr David Rudling, Academic Director of the Sussex School of Archaeology and expert on all things Roman to speak about: “Eastbourne’s Lost Roman Villa and other Villas in the South of England” at our monthly meeting.

David will tell us what evidence we have of Eastbourne’s Roman villa comparing it to other villas such as Fishbourne Roman Palace, Bignor, Lullingstone, Folkestone and Plumpton.
