The venue

King Alfred’s University College is located in the
historic city of Winchester. We will be staying on-campus in Alwyn Hall East.
The accommodation comprises single rooms each with a washbasin. Toilets,
showers and a kitchenette are shared between five rooms. The College is small,
so it is only a few minutes walk between halls, dining room and meeting rooms.
Numbers are restricted so accommodation will be allocated on a first come
basis, although there are also a number of B&B’s nearby. Parking is
available on-campus with permits issued by the College at registration.

We were given a large meeting room for our lectures and a second, smaller
lockable room, for members to display pottery. There is also room for poster
displays for anyone wishing to present work in-progress etc.

The conference theme.

There was a small number of papers with a local emphasis. Other papers offered
included: The Eruption of Vesuvius and its implications for
Roman Pottery Studies
