A continuation of Stroud Big Dig (2016 – 2019), Liss Archaeology are continuing exploration of the area with the focus for 2020 being in fields near Petersfield. Test pits and field walking here revealed previously unknown Iron Age/ Romano-British artefacts and features. A series of geophysical surveys have taken place as well as desktop background research including Lidar and old aerial photographs.
2020 has large scale excavations planned plus, if the farming calendar permits, fieldwalking. Further geophysical surveys are also planned.
Training is available in all aspects of archaeology (by prior request), all skills levels welcome.
Volunteers from all walks of life are welcome to take part. From 18 to 80’s, all abilities.

Students are encouraged to experience community-based, volunteer archaeology with a friendly group of like-minded people.
