Wessex Archaeology will be featured on BBC Radio 3’s “Sunday Feature” on Sunday 5th February at 9.30pm.

In one of the most famous last lines of modern poetry,Seamus Heaney resolves to use his pen as a spade and excavate. Like many poets, Heaney is drawn to archaeology. Christine Finn, an archaeologist and poet herself, explores the connections between these two crafts.

As part of the programme, Christine visited our excavations at Renny Lodge, Newport Pagnell. The result is broadcast as The Sunday Feature and is called “I’ll dig with it.”

Further details can be found on Radio 3’s Sunday Feature website.
