Archaeological Excavation Day School

Summary: Five thousand years of occupation revealed

Date: Mar 10, 2018 14:00:00

One of the most extraordinary archaeological sites in Dorset was revealed during an excavation in Worth Matravers undertaken by members of the East Dorset Antiquarian Society between 2006 and 2011.

This day school, entitled Life, Death and Feasting, 5,600 Years of Occupation Revealed, with Lilian Ladle, Dr Clare Randall, Sue Cullinane and Andrew Morgan, offers the opportunity to learn how people made use of this special location beginning 5,600 years ago in the early Neolithic period and continuing well into the Post-Roman period.

The event, held at Harman's Cross Village Hall, starts at 2pm and ends at 5pm. Doors open at 1.30pm.

Admission is free but any donations towards publication costs will be welcome.

This event is outside the Cranborne Chase AONB, but is being advertised because it will be of interest to people living within the area.
