The Archaeology of the


Winter Programme


Starting in October, we will be carrying out new geophysical surveys to try and find new sites, and to trace the Roman trackway system from Northfield Farm to Castle Hill.

On Sundays we will be fieldwalking across our Study Area to look for new sites, and to date ones known only from cropmarks or geophysical survey. We are also hoping to arrange a weekend excavation.

For those who prefer indoor work there is plenty to do helping to catalogue all of the finds from the summer excavation, or researching the maps, documents and historic buildings. If you would like to become involved, please contact either Hugo Lamdin-Whymark or Denise Price on 01865 263800.
