From April 2013, Archaeology In Marlow (AIM) will be conducting further investigations at the site of Warren Wood in Little Marlow, Bucks. This site comprises of a double enclosure earthwork believed to be Medieval in date. Evidence of Neolithic artefacts and Iron Age pottery suggests the origins of the site are much earlier.
From April to October, AIM members will meet once a fortnight to undertake research into both the site and surrounding area. In addition, AIM will be concluding its excavations in a small trench across the bank and ditch of the outer enclosure, and will then commence excavating two new test pits (1 x 1 metre) in the inner enclosure.
Non-members are welcome to join the excavation, although space is limited so volunteers will need to book in advance. No experience is required as training will be given in a wide variety of archaeological practices. Non-members are asked to pay a small daily fee. Participants must be between the ages of 16 and 73 to be covered by AIM’s insurances.
