Hirst Wood Excavation 29th June – 2nd July

Hirst Wood Excavation

The investigation of charcoal burning platforms continues on the 29th June.  Over the course of four days we’ll be excavating a platform in Hirst Wood in order to determine the age of the platform asking: When was it constructed? How many times was it used? When did it go out of use?  We will also be looking at the types of wood used for the process of charcoal production.

This is a free event, if you would like to attend get in touch at:
