A former regular from Channel 4's long-running popular archaeology series Time Team is to be a guest speaker at a Norwich conference.

Time Team favourite Guy de la Bedoyere will be one of the speakers at a major conference on Roman East Anglia to be held at UEA later this month.

The historian and broadcaster became known to millions of television viewers in his role as one of the resident experts on the popular Channel 4 series.

Mr de la Bedoyere - who actually began his working life at Norwich Union in the city in 1976-77 before starting his academic career - will talk about 'The Real Lives of Roman Britain'.

He is one of five guest speakers at the conference, organised by the Norfolk Archaeological and Historial Research Group and taking place at the Centre of East Anglian Studies on Saturday July 22 (9.45am-5.15pm).

Places are £27 for non-NAHRG members, to include a buffet lunch. Bookings via enquiries@nahrg.org.uk or 01953 453915.
