Local archaeology / Freston 17:21 - Apr 3 with 470 viewsstringy

In an attempt to post something that doesn't deal with the current ills (and a shameless plug for what we're up to), we've just launched our website on our work down at Freston that we started in earnest last summer, and were kinda hoping to return to this August...

It's an Early Neolithic (introduction of farming) 'causewayed enclosure', 4th largest in Britain, which is where people came to worship, feast, exchange and meet marriage partners - so a bit like FPR/Fanzone on a good day.

About 5600 years old (which for our younger readers is a bit further back in time since we last beat Norwich) and a Historic England scheduled monument - not that most people know it's there.

If we do get back there this summer (not holding breath) then we will do an open day and I can let people know ahead of time if anyone wants to pootle along, otherwise see you in the Greyhound pre-match (unless I'm still stuck in Canada)

I also have an excavation in the Greek islands earlier in the summer but can't see that going ahead

Small world, thanks for letting me know. He would be happy I’m sure to help out if you need anyone and it could count towards field work. We’ll have to see how it all goes obviously in next few weeks. I think they may Transfer some required fieldwork to next year but all up in the air at moment.
