Perhaps it was the medieval mystery that surrounds Longforth Farm, Wellington, or the beautiful weather that inspired over 1400 visitors to come along to Saturday’s Archaeology Day.
The open day, Sponsored by Bloor Homes and organised by Wessex Archaeology, featured guided tours of the medieval remains under excavations and viewings of the latest finds.
Phil Harding, of Time Team fame, was on hand to talk to the visitors and provide his unique take on the unravelling medieval mystery. Members of Somerset County Council’s Archaeology Service were also present.
All in all it was an excellent day out for local communities and a fantastic response to Wellington’s hidden heritage.
