Second season of the Boxford Community dig has started

The second season of investigations by the Boxford History Project have commenced. This project is being undertaken by a partnership of the Boxford History Project, the Berkshire Archaeology Research Group and Cotswold Archaeology with generous support from the Heritage Lottery Fund.

Following last year’s successful dig on the site of a major Roman villa this year teams of volunteers will be investigating a second Romano-British Site just outside the village of Boxford in the Kennet Valley, with Cotswold Archaeology Staff providing supervision and, importantly, training, to allow the volunteers to gain valuable skills.

The early results are looking very promising with evidence of structures being revealed ion the main trenches.

An open day is planned for Sunday 4 September 2016. Updates can be seen on the Boxford History Project Blog  and see the Cotswold Archaeology twitter feed (@CotswoldArch) for more updates as works progress.
