The evening will cover:

-The findings of the archaeological fieldwork and reassessment of the finds from the 20s and 30s excavations, how this changes our understanding of the site and what new questions it raises

-Brighton and Hove Archaeological Society's role in promoting and protecting Brighton's heritage

-How the existing archive has been re-catalogued, re-packed and made more accessible for future study. 

-The current value of the site, its natural heritage, what changes the project has helped bring about on site and what the future may bring.
