Archaeology Group News

Several members of the Historical Society assisted with the excavation of the Petersfield Heath barrows during September. Working on the three sites, they were involved with a range of tasks from excavation and sieving to recording. For more details of the project and how to volunteer, visit the People of the Heath website.

Our photo shows our member Lyn Pease pointing to evidence of the ditch in the oval enclosure. Material from the ditch is undergoing analysis to establish dates.
