WELCOME TO LISS ARCHAEOLOGY
COMMUNITY ARCHAEOLOGY GROUP
FOR EAST HAMPSHIRE
We have over 130 volunteer members, who carry out archaeological investigations and excavations under professional supervision across East Hampshire and West Sussex.
Our group was originally formed in 2004 to investigate a Romano-British site in West Liss, where an aisled building with bath house and courtyard were discovered.
In 2009 we moved on to explore a new and exciting site near Colemore, with ongoing research, geophysics surveys and excavation carried out by enthusiastic volunteers.
Since 2016 we have also been exploring a Romano-British settlement in Stroud near Petersfield and have a number of other ongoing projects, including the Alton Big Dig.

Thanks to some incredibly generous donations, including one of £4000 recently, our fundraising drive has reached a total of £6525. We still have a long way to go to achieve our target so if you can consider a donation, please see our Fundraising page.
Digging finishes for 2021
Colemore Dig & Ludshott Common
Thanks to everyone who took part in our last dig of the year at Colemore. However, exploratory work continues on archaeology on the National Trust land at Ludshott Common, with features ranging from prehistory to military training use in WW1 and WW2
