Gestingthorpe October update

Although we’re approaching the winter months and a pause in work on our Romano British site several SVCA members gathered last Saturday, 13th October, to enjoy work on a warm and sunny day. Here’s a few photos from then and the digging days in August to keep you up to date.

    1. Mr Cooper you will not recall but we have corresponded in the past – and I have visited the farm when back in UK but your father was the only person present He showed me his Romano British collection of items all some years back Howsomever I was wondering if you have written any more books? I have just been through some papers of a deceased uncle and found some recipes for concoctions “To make a Stallion Stand” and the like. I recall you made mention of such in your books. These recipes came from my GT GT grandfather one of the Cocky Smiths of Fordham I trust you are well Take care Rod Miller
