Latest discoveries from Kingsmead Quarry, Horton presented at the Berkshire Day School
Last Saturday (March 2nd) Gareth Chaffey presented the latest discoveries made at Kingsmead Quarry, Horton to the Berkshire Archaeological Society at their annual day school held at The Cornerstone, Wokingham. The excavations, funded by CEMEX UK, have been running since 2003 and each year the Day School provides an opportunity to tell more of the story of Horton’s archaeological past. Last year’s excavation revealed an in situ early Mesolithic flint scatter, part of a new Middle Bronze Age farmstead, and other exciting discoveries. Those that attended the talk were the first to view two short animations that have been created by Karen Nichols of Wessex Archaeology that show how a prehistoric houses was constructed and a ‘meet the ancestors’ view inside.
