Harpole Bowls Club
There are adequate free car parking spaces at the club.
Admission is free but donations to CLASP are always welcome! Light refreshments and a raffle will be available. There will be a static exhibition and, if you are not a member, a chance to talk informally with us to enable you to find out more about us.
This year the principal speaker will be our Archaeological Director, Stephen Young, who will firstly speak on our recent archaeological work in the Bannaventa area and elsewhere. He will then provide an update on the proposal to create a permanent home for CLASP at Norton. This is an important project if CLASP is to further develop and have archive, research learning facilities.
The second speaker will be the Chair of Northampton Artefact Recovery Club (NARC), Alan Standish, who will talk on how his Club’s work has helped identify possible early communication routes.
We look forward to seeing you on the night.

The latest procedural instruction document from CLASP on artefact retention and disposal: for Members only in the Members’ Area.
Here are two articles by John Winter from The Searcher magazine. They feature our good friend Dave Derby and illustrate the long-term successful collaboration between NARC and CLASP including the discovery of Saxon skeletons at the Nether Heyford site.
Reproduced here by kind permission of The Searcher magazine – with thanks to the editor for the .pdf files.
At many of the sites where CLASP has worked (including Nether Heyford and Bannaventa), there have been traces of earlier occupation during the Iron Age – however, the main focus of CLASP’s work up to now has tended to be on the Roman-period, since that produced a great deal more enduring archaeology.
These newly uploaded files all cover projects, recently undertaken by teams from CLASP, that are specific to the Iron Age in Northamptonshire.
