2017 proved to be a very busy archaeological year. We worked through many of the sites from Bagshot, updating and clarifying the records we hold for these sites.In doing so we ‘re-discovered’ many items and finds.
Maps and plans long laying in a chest of drawers were taken out and dusted down.
Read our latest newsletter to see how we have been getting along and see some of the items.
