Kingsmead Quarry in the News

Some of the recent discoveries from the 2013 excavations are reported in the latest Windsor Express. These include the excavation of a Bronze Age (1500 BC) farmstead and fields, and another section of the Romano-British farm that was investigated in previous years. These discoveries are helping to build a picture of how the landscape developed over the last 10,000 years, of how people lived and how they farmed the land. This year we have found a small number of graves of the people that lived in the two settlements. Just like today some people were buried in graves and others were cremated.
 
To finds out more and hear Gareth Chaffey (site director) talk about the excavations watch the press video and slideshow.
