Archaeology Field School Description


This site was featured in a National Geographic TV programme and most recently was featured in a Times Newspaper, and the Daily Mail Online website Christmas 2014 for its unique pagan pits. The site is multi-period with its earliest feature being a Mesolithic camp going on to a Neolithic ritual area and Bronze Age Metalworking features. No experience is necessary as training will be given on site. The main qualification is a delight in discovering all aspects of our prehistoric and historic past with a trowel. Every week students have an opportunity to do some experimental archaeology in and around our Bronze Age roundhouse construction on site.
