Archaeology Group News

After several interesting visits during the summer months, September hails the arrival of the Society’s winter programme. This September also brings the first ever organised excavation of the Barrows on the Heath, which starts on 9th September and lasts for three weeks. Ever since the start of our Society, the Heath barrows have always been of immense interest to our members and the Museum’s “People of the Heath Project” will hopefully reveal some exciting information.

Whilst the project is under the control of a research Director and a professional archaeologist, several of our members are currently involved. If you would like to be involved please contact the Curator at Petersfield Museum for more information.

For more information, visit the People of the Heath website.
