Peter Liddle will discuss archaeological developments in the Soar Valley between Leicester and Loughborough. Sadly, little is known about Belgrave’s archaeology as it was built up before archaeology was an issue but Peter’s talk will give some idea of the richness of the valley from prehistory to the creation of the villages and will provide a clue to what might have been found in Belgrave.
Peter Liddle has worked in Leicestershire archaeology since 1970 as an excavator, survey officer and museum curator for Leicestershire County Council, where he was Principal Archaeologist after 1997. After retirement he has worked with the University of Leicester, where he is a Honorary Visiting Fellow. He is chair of Leicestershire Fieldworkers and organises the Festival of Leicestershire and Rutland Archaeology.
