Just a reminder that our dig is going on at Eaton Camp. We are nearing the final stages of our work and our excavations have been very successful. We have found both ditches that we wanted to date and explore for artefacts. They have revealed pottery, bone, charcoal, cooking stones, and more. Best of all we should be able to date many aspects of use of the sites.
We will, of course, have a presentation for the Parish and local residents once things have been analysed a bit more. But if you would like to see the actual excavations, you will have to come before Friday evening. We’re on site from 9:00am to 4:00pm. Leave your car at the parking lot of what was the Ancient Camp Inn and walk along the greenway to the lane going up to the Eckley’s farm. Then come through the big black iron gate onto the National Trust property. (See attached map and location of trenches). Alternatively, you can follow the footpath at Hill Fort House to the new stairs and come down into the second National Trust field.
We hope to see more of you in the next few days.
