Tea-time talk: Discovering the lost Royal Fort

Join us for a short tea-time talk and discover the story of the Royal Fort.

This year’s student training excavations took place at the University of Bristol’s Royal Fort Gardens.  The aim was to find new evidence about the Royal Fort, part of Bristol’s Civil War fortifications and a stronghold for Prince Rupert. Two trenches were excavated revealing a much larger footprint for the fort than previously thought.

Find out about the discoveries made by staff and students at the University of Bristol and learn about their ongoing work.

This tea-time talk is part of the Festival of Archaeology, the UK’s biggest celebration of archaeology.

Speaker: Dr. Konstantinos Trimmis is a Technician, Research Associate and Associate Teacher at the University of Bristol. His Interests include Prehistoric Europe, Contemporary Britain and Greece, and the world Diasporas.
