Every week our teams of archaeologists are uncovering interesting finds across the country. Whether it is an artefact or an ecofact, each piece of evidence helps us build a more detailed picture of the past.
Join us in an exciting journey of discovery.
Adam is in our Lancaster office
Adam had some great high school work experience volunteers in the office learning about archaeological illustration and how art and geometry are used to reconstruct roman pottery!
Clem is at the Begbroke Science Park, South East region
Our Community Archaeology Manager, Clem Cooper, took part in the Science Wonder garden party hosted by the University of Oxford at their new Science Park in Begbroke. Clem showed some of our finds from Begbroke and nearby areas and talked about OA's work in and around Oxford.
Adrienne is analysing a whale bone fragment in our South West region
This specimen might look like wood but is actually a fragment of bone from a large species of whale!
It was found in the bottom of a mid-late Iron Age ditch at Fiddington, near Tewkesbury, and is one of the few known cetacean finds from this period in southern England. It is also one of only two examples found in a site not right on the coast.
