Remember: Our podcast is recorded upstairs in the popular local pub, the Red Deer, on Pitt Street in Sheffield. Some background noise and general kerfuffle is unavoidable - my apologies for the variable sound quality.

Excavations at the Roman Temple Area of Diana Umbronensis at Scoglietto - Arch and Ale Episode 1

Welcome to the Show Notes!

Welcome to the first episode of Archaeology and Ale. The Archaeology and Ale podcast presents a free monthly series of lectures on all aspects of archaeology (not just the academic stuff).

These lectures are part of the Archaeology in the City program, a series of talks, events and activities held by the University of Sheffield. The Archaeology in the city program aims to bring archaeology to the public of the city of Sheffield, in South Yorkshire in the United Kingdom. Now, thanks to the good folks of the Archaeology Podcast Network, we can also bring archaeology to listeners around the world.

The Archaeology and Ale talks are hosted at the Red Deer pub on Pitt Street in Sheffield ( ). The Deer has long been the archaeology department’s unofficial extra lecture theatre so it was the natural venue for our talks programme. 

As this talk is recorded in a small room over the bar of a very popular local pub, it’s going to have a bit of background noise! 

This month, our speaker is Dr Alessandro Sebastiani ( ) of the University of Sheffield, speaking about: "Excavations at the Roman Temple Area of Diana Umbronensis at Scoglietto. 2009-2011”           

Now here’s the legal stuff: Please note that the content of this recording is  © Dr Alessandro Sebastiani2015 and the recording is © The University of Sheffield 2015. 

The first volume of the research at Scoglietto is available here:   

We’re still getting our social media presence sorted out, so watch this space next month for a link to our Archaeology in the City web page and social media accounts. 

Thank you again to the Archaeology Podcast Network for hosting our Archaeology and Ale talks. We hope you enjoyed it and would love to hear from you! Email:
