In the summer  the New Forest National Park Authority and Wessex Archaeology teamed up for a week-long excavation at Buckler’s Hard. This happened during the Council of British Archaeology's Festival of British Archaeology.

The dig was part of a wider Heritage Lottery Funded project called "New Forest Remembers: untold stories of World War II".  Check out our Events blog for stories of the excavation and how it went.

We also gave Naomi Brennan, Wessex Archaeology staff heading up the excavations, a camera to record what volunteers and visitors thought about the excavation.  You can watch the final result below.
