The British Archaeological Association’s 2015 annual conference will be held at Peterborough. The focus of the conference will be the architecture, art and archaeology throughout the Soke of Peterborough, especially that of Peterborough Cathedral and its precincts from the Anglo-Saxon period through the Middle Ages to the nineteenth century. Trips will include visits to the Bronze Age site Flag Fen, the Roman remains at Castor and the Anglo-Saxon tower at Barnack Church as well as many medieval buildings in the precincts and around the Soke. Other highlights include a visit to Thorpe Hall, built in the 1650s, and the remains of the early seventeenth-century Wothorpe Towers by Thomas Cecil.
