Rural Settlement in Roman Yorkshire.

For those of you looking for something to do  with  the nights  drawing  in, there is an interesting all day conference in Malton on  Saturday the 24th October 2015

I am advised by Jill Wilson there are still tickets available for the conference. If anybody is interested  either contact her, and she will send you the editable booking  form I have posted , or if it suits, just cut and paste the one below  into a word document, fill it in and return to her. You then pay the £12 entry for non members on the door, there is also a lunch booking form for those who don’t want to sample the delights of Malton hostelries.
