Ohh . . Missed it ! The Association for the Study and Preservation of Roman Mosaics (ASPROM), British section of AIEMA (l'Association Internationale pour 1'Etude de la Mosaïque Antique), a Registered Charity (like the ARA). Many ARA Members also belong to ASPROM.

Unforgivable: I live within sight of Hereford Cathedral . . had my diary been better organised . . I'd have joined ASPROM and been at the ASPROM Summer Symposium 2004, 11-13 June, City of Hereford, UK.

Friday: Gloucester Museum (mosaics, Roman gallery)
Saturday: Hereford Museum and tour of Hereford Cathedral and the Mappa Mundi and the Chained Library;
Symposium, Deveraux room, The Green Dragon Hotel
Judy Stevenson: The Romans in Herefordshire
Steve Cosh: The mosaics of Kenchester and Lydney
David Neal: The mosaics of Gloucester
Pat Witts: The Medusa & Seasons Mosaic at Brading - cult, culture or calendar?Sunday: Lydney Park Roman Temple complex with Sylvia Jones

The group hotel: The Green Dragon, Broad Street, Hereford HR4 9BG,
in the city centre opposite the cathedral. [ NB the huge City Walls here are not Roman but were built to keep out raiding Vikings who kept coming up the river Wye].
ASPROM Events Secretary can be contacted via the ASPROM website re forthcoming events.
