WHITWELL Local History Group: On 27th September, Mr Malcolm Dolby gave the second part of his talk Along the River Trent - the Motorway of Saxon and Roman times. He resumed his walk at Newark Castle, owned by the Bishops of Lincoln, but a Royalist stronghold during the Civil War. Romans and Vikings had built along the banks and recent finds have included Viking armoury, a 9th Century Roman strap end, and a penny from the reign of King Alfred the Great. The walk ended at Blacktoft Sands. Mr Dolby brought his talk to an end by showing a picture of a Latin inscribed stone tablet and asked “Did a Roman soldier of the 11th Legion bring this to Lincoln?” The AGM will take place on 11th October to be followed by a film presentation by Mr Harold Streets.
