Here is a good one in the latest Archaeology News podcast
www.stonepages.news where you can listen to as well as read the news.
An excavation on the town's earliest known settlement began as the Marlow
Archaeological Society (MAS) attempted to find out more about our ancestors
in the Thames Valley (Buckinghamshire, England). The dig began in Low
Grounds Farm in the Harleyford Estate where Marlow's first ever residents
lived at a time when the rest of the town was just a lake.
Pam Knight, fieldwork secretary, said: "The first few days went brilliantly.
It has already showed up what appears to be the remains of pits which
suggests people were there."
The site was once several islands and is a late Neolithic to Bronze Age
settlement (3000 - 800 BCE) known to include a mortuary enclosure and a
barrow cemetery. The dig will be professionally supervised by Oxford
Archaeology and is the second half of a two-part dig which began in Cookham
last year; its findings will be included in the English Heritage Sites and
People who are keen to see what kind of treasures are being unearthed
at Low Grounds are encouraged to come along to the dig's open day on Sunday
(July 16) from 10am until 4pm. For more information contact MAS on 01628
