Ceremony and settlement in rural Norfolk

By News

Our nationally significant site at Hopton-on-Sea, Norfolk, features in a fascinating article by Mike Pitts in the latest (May/June) edition of British Archaeology. The site lay in an area of extensive cropmarks, previously studied as part of the National Mapping Program (NMP) of the Norfolk Coastal Zone. Our findings brought details of this study into sharper focus, revealing a ceremonial landscape in use for at least two or three millennia.

A Bronze Age votive offering

By Excavations at Cholsey, News No Comments

This week at Cholsey our team have continued to be fascinated and surprised by the artefactual material revealed during our investigations. Following on from those beautiful worked flints and the dog burial, this week we have uncovered this rather stunning Bronze Age food storage jar which had been deliberately buried in the centre of the main droveway that dominates the area. Once off-site we can begin to excavate its contents in our labs to see what it was filled with. This will hopefully give further insight into this apparent votive offering, but for now you will just have to content yourselves with how beautiful an object the jar and its decoration is in its own right!

Worked flints at Cholsey

By Excavations at Cholsey, News No Comments

As we mentioned in our first update, a cache of worked flints was discovered in one of the small pits that dot the excavation site in Cholsey, Oxfordshire. This was excavated by Sean Rice from our Warwick office. In amongst the more general cache were four lovely scrapers, two of which you can see here, but by far the star of the show is this lovely leaf shaped arrowhead. These delicate tools are frequently found broken but it is rare to find one in such lovely condition, so well done Sean.
