During 2015 Archaeology In Marlow (AIM) will be conducting further investigations at a site in Little Marlow, Bucks. This site comprises of a double enclosure earthwork believed to be Medieval in date, but Neolithic artefacts and Iron Age pottery found there suggest the origins of the site are much earlier.
AIM will continue to conduct research into the site and surrounding area to learn more about the site. In addition, AIM will be continuing to excavate two 2m by 1m trenches in the inner enclosure and will then commence excavating two sections in the bank and ditch, again in the inner enclosure.
AIM intends to visit the site on alternate Sunday mornings (10 o’clock) during 2015. These visits last around 3 hours. The schedule of visit dates is available upon request.
Non-members are very welcome, experienced, or not, as training will be given in a wide variety of archaeology practices, but they must first join AIM via the AIM website. Excavators must be over 16 and under 77 years of age to be covered by AIM’s insurances.
As the investigations are on private land and space is limited, potential volunteers will need to ‘book in’, by emailing John Laker on firstname.lastname@example.org, or ringing him on 01628 481792. Membership details and more information about Warren Wood are present on AIM’s website, www.archaeologyinmarlow.org.uk.
Please note that access to the site by public transport is not easy.
