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.
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.
Dom is surveying in our South East region
One of the advantages of carrying out surveys is the opportunity to discover new places, as for instance the Trundle hillfort, a hidden treasure in West Sussex. Upon reaching this site, visitors are rewarded with awe-inspiring panoramic views.
Anne-Laure is digging in our East England region
One of the many fragments of axe moulds we’ve found during excavations on this Bronze Age settlement in Cambridgeshire. A socketed axe core. Quite a rare find.
