Castle Hill, Calne - further excavations

Advance notice - further excavations to take place from 5 to 8 May 2011.

Planning is under way for a further dig on Castle Hill in Calne and details will be sent out as soon as possible. The excavation is to investigate one of the ditches that surround the top of the hill. Its goal is to determine if the ditches are ramparts from the Iron Age, or Medieval defensive structures, or 18th/19th century garden embellishments. The dig using trowels and spades only (no Time Team - type JCBs) will take place from 5 to 8 May 2011.
