Saveock water Archaeology is now in its 17th Season and has had a National Geographic TV documentary made of it and has featured in the world media.
The site has a Mesolithic Camp by the stream a Neolithic Ritual area and a Bronze Age Metalworking area. The world media interest is in our Pagan Pits which date from 1640 to the 1970’s. These ritual deposits have not been written about, and until we excavated, were an unknown belief system. No experience is needed as we teach on site and have workshops so if the weather is wet we can do post-excavation work.
