Thu Jul 31 16:30:09 BST 2008
CLASP, Community Landscape and Archaeology Survey Project, www.claspweb.org.uk will be holding its annual public open meeting at 19.30hrs on 16th September 2008 at the Saxon Suite, Daventry Leisure Centre, Lodge Road, Daventry, Northamptonshire. The meeting will take the form of a platform debate taking questions from the floor on the question of the interface between large scale development, archaeology, protection of our historical heritage and the role that community archaeology can play in ensuring the detection, investigation and proper protection for the archaeological heritage affected by this development.
The panel will be chaired by Dr. Mike Heyworth MBE, the Director of the CBA and the members will be representatives from English Heritage, West Northamptonshire Development Corporation and Stephen Young from the University of Northampton, CLASP Archaeological Director.
CLASPs area of interest in west and south Northamptonshire is currently subjected to major development proposals to build many thousands of houses with supporting infrastructure and employment areas on the periphery of Towcester and Daventry. Both places have significant archaeological interest, Towcester being a Romano-British Town itself and the proposals for Daventry immediately border the site of another Romano-British town, Bannaventa. There are numerous other sites of interest directly in the area covered by these proposals. Outwith the CLASP area there is major development currently being undertaken both on the outskirts of and within Northampton itself.
This promises to be an informed and lively debate to which you are all welcome, whilst entry is free we will be looking for voluntary donations to further the activities of CLASP. Light refreshments will be available.
