Goodbye from the Outreach Team…

January 2017 marks the end of the Hinkley Point Archaeology Outreach Project. The team from the South West Heritage Trust have spent the last four and a half years busy teaching school children about archaeology, running family events at museums and libraries and doing talks and pop up displays in community venues across the Somerset.

However…it is not quite the end.  Cotswold Archaeology is busy with post-excavation work, in particular the scientific analysis of the 330 human skeletons discovered in the early medieval cemetery at Hinkley.  You can read more about their progress by following the link below.

In the meantime we would like to say a big thank you for reading our blog and to all of you we have met during our travels across the county!  Don’t forget that you can find out more about the excavations by watching the films at https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCgf0BHf5pD9GulfGjbf_3Zg
