Tuesday, March 5th  at 7.30 p.m. in the Memorial Hall, Laugharne: Andy Shobbrook, from Dyfed Archaeology Trust, will update us on the small excavation that occurred last year just by Tavernspite. It would appear to have been of a Roman fortlet. Perhaps he may be able speculate on why it was there – guarding what? Was there a road from Whitland Roman fort to it? And, if so, where was that road heading to – the possible villa at Trelissey? We shall see if the mysteries may be uncovered that evening. This will be live only – not on zoom, sorry.
