A big thank you to everyone that attended the recent Archaeology Open Day at Putton Lane, Chickerell, and our team for their hard work in putting on a successful event. Over a hundred visitors joined us for the afternoon and early evening and we were all treated to a warm and sunny August day. We are extremely grateful to Chickerell Town Council for very kindly providing Willowbed Hall for our displays throughout the day and their support for the event. The site tours were very well received and it was wonderful to see some familiar faces. Some thought provoking questions too and several offers of help as part of our volunteer programme!

The excavation continues for a while longer and we hope to put on some talks as part of our autumn programme when it’s all finished. Watch this space!
