MIDDLEWICH is set to go back in time as a talk is being held on the uncovered knowledge of Roman life found in an archaeological dig on King Street. 

‘The King Street Roman Finds’ talk will be held on Thursday, July 13, at Victoria Hall on Civic Way. 

The talk is set to start at 7pm, and will be given by Paul Dunn, project manager of the King Street site. 

The site was partially dug in the 1970s, but further digs were held in August and September of 2021, which revealed various details about Roman day to day activities in Middlewich. 

A preserved Roman salt brine works was found in the dig, expertly built and illustrating how Middlewich operated in the first and second centuries. 

As well as this, several artefacts were found, ranging from a gold pendant to a funerary urn. 

Tickets can be purchased online for £5, or £3 if you are a member of the Middlewich Heritage Trust, which will be hosting the event. 

Under 16s can attend the event for free.
