Practical Archaeology Training Course at Down Farm, Sixpenny Handley

September 3rd-7th and 10th-14th 2007

Following the success of the last three years, these five day courses will take place at Martin Green’s farm on Cranborne Chase “one of the most carefully studied areas in western Europe”. The Down Farm landscape includes parts of the Dorset Cursus and Ackling Dyke, Bronze Age barrows and Roman and Iron Age buildings. It is a rich, multi-period site in a wonderful setting.

The course will include instruction and practice in site surveying, excavation, recording (the production of both written records and scale drawings) and finds processing.
