This is the 18th Season at this multi period site dating from the Mesolithic to 17th century pagan deposits.
The dig has featured extensively on the world media and had a National Geographic Documentary made on it. The Director Jacqui Wood was listed last year in the top 2% of researchers on Academia.edu (based in California it has 56 million academics as members) where her papers can be seen on Experimental Archaeology.
This season at Saveock we aim to continue to follow the Neolithic stone built water course we excavated last season and expand the area of the Bronze Age Crystal hearth (pictures of this can be seen if you scroll down the pictures on our Facebook page).
No experience is necessary at Saveock, just an enthusiasm to discover the secrets of the past in this delightful Cornish valley.
