AGM 2019: Stone-Age Datchet

AGM 2019: Stone-Age Datchet

posted in: What's On | 0

Archaeological remains dating from the end of the last Ice Age have been found at Riding Court Farm. One of the most exciting discoveries is a Neolithic circular enclosure of national importance. Excavations are now revealing the hidden secrets of this monument, including what is thought to be a Stone-Age house, as well as fascinating and unique finds of pottery, tools, and a rare antler comb. We have invited John Powell from Wessex Archaeology to tell us more about these exciting discoveries at our AGM, following a very brief business meeting. And please stay to enjoy drinks and nibbles afterwards.

To give you an idea of the scale of the discovery, the image at the top shows people in orange jackets standing next to the marked trenches of the circular enclosure.
