Talk by Dr Stuart Prior on the University of Bristol's 
Archaeological Project at Berkeley Castle

The Friends were delighted to welcome back Dr Stuart Prior to update us on
the findings and developments in uncovering the extraordinary history of the area around the Castle.
The project is in its fifteenth year and continues to fascinate.

Dr Prior's specialist areas are Medieval Archaeology, Castle Studies and Archaeological Practice
 and, as ever, his insights were enlightening and entertaining.
A brief report will appear in February 2019's edition of The Berkeley Buttress.

FoBC at Frampton Country Fair
Sunday 9th September 2018

The Fair was a great success again, without the rain that marred last year's event.
Committee members and Friends helped to man the stand and welcomed a steady stream of visitors,
 some of whom had fun with the chain mail helmet, the Tudor headdress 
and even tried their hand at stringing the longbow.  
An early morning view from the FoBC stand.
                                     Events at the Arena were popular, photos below.  Do come along next year, it is a great day out!
