Outing to Cheverell Down

On 2nd February, Roy took a small group onto Cheverell Down, part of the Salisbury Plain Training area, to view the remains of a substantial ancient field-system. This was show persons interested in the project the kind of archaeology we are hoping to detect locally – though not so extensively preserved.  This was a useful experiment to see how those present viewed earthworks in the landscape , and clearly further trips of this nature will be valuable training.

Get involved!

There are many ways to get involved with the project: looking at aerial photographs, field walking, helping to plot the findings on maps, to name but a few.  For those interested in helping with the project, we will also be running training sessions on reading aerial photographs, identifying earthworks, and other skills.

If you are interested in getting involved with this exciting project, please contact Roy Canham on 01225 866748 or at roycanham@btinternet.com.

If you aren’t able to help, but you want to keep up to date, then please follow our blog.  We’ll be holding public talks and other events later in the year, so look out for announcements here.
