Welcome to Liss Archaeology
COMMUNITY ARCHAEOLOGY GROUP
FOR EAST HAMPSHIRE
We have about 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 near Petersfield and have a number of other ongoing projects, including the Petersfield Big Dig.
News as at February 2024
Annual General Meeting
Members are asked to note that our AGM will take place at the Triangle Centre, Mill Road, Liss, GU33 7DX on Wednesday 27th March. Please arrive at 7.00pm for for 7.30pm start. The minutes of the last AGM for approval can be seen here.
There will be a fund-raising raffle, tickets £1 each. We would be grateful for any raffle prize donations.
After the close of the formal meeting there will be a talk by Peter Price about last year's Petersfield Big Dig.
The Fieldwork Committee are planning our main excavations and geophysics explorations for later in 2024, in liaison with the landowners who kindly let us work on their properties.
We expect there to be another Petersfield Big Dig again this July, during the British Festival of Archaeology, following the success of the first such event in 2023. We also intend to have the usual main digs in the spring and autumn. Please see the Events page for provisional dates.
