For the last four years, Wessex Archaeology has run a series of very successful five day courses at Dr 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.
It runs from September 1st - 5th and 8th - 12th 2008. More details can be found in our training section.
