NEHHAS - Field Archaeology Branch Home
The Roman Road from Winchester to London has been surveyed as far as the Hogs Back near Farnham. Far more field boundaries parallel and right angle to this road than chance indicate the remains of a Roman field system. In Italy, southern France, and north Africa if the estates were large a grid of estate roads were provided. Such a grid has been found from Four Marks to near Winchester. Three of these have been surveyed, and excavations occuring on them. A GPS survey is planned over the winter to determine how accurately two parallel surveyed roads were laid out.
Experienced and novice excavators welcome. Further details contact Dr Richard Whaley AIFA, Field Works & School Director, 2 Rotherwick Court, Alexandra Road, Farnborough GU14 6DD, 01252 548115 (SEA appreciated), or Use the Email Form, or visit the online Information and Booking Form
