The PLACE Field School takes place within Dorset, a county of outstanding natural beauty and one of the best preserved archaeological landscapes in Britain. This year the project is based in Purbeck, on the edge of Poole Harbour. 

On the Purbeck site this year, we will gain insight into how harbourside communities developed over time and how those groups and individuals related to wider maritime connectivity and historical changes.

Participants will be able to participate in excavation, geophysical survey and experimental archaeology.
