14 - 28 July 2019 [Ended]
ALTON BIG DIG
The first Alton Big Dig has now finished but was a great success. In the Public Gardens we found archaeology ranging from the Romano-British period through Tudor, Civil War and Victorian eras up to the Second World War. We aim to give a presentation in Alton about our results, probably in November.
Over 600 visitors were shown around the site during the Dig and some 120 children took part in the children's activities. For more information click on the botton below to see our day-by-day blog.
We have already been asked to return to Alton this winter to carry out some geophysics on a new site, and to organise another Big Dig next summer.
9 August - 2 September 2019
Our larger-than-usual dig at Stroud near Petersfield in Hampshire has now started and bookings have therefore closed.
Please see the warning on the home page of this website; this is a closed dig for Liss Archaeology members only on private land and anyone attempting to make an unscheduled visit will be regarded as a trespasser and turned away.
Following our interesting discoveries in Stroud last summer, we hope this year to carry out a larger-scale investigation of at least three potential Romano-British sites we have identified in and around Stroud, during a 3-week exploration which should involve geophysics, field-walking and excavation.

COLEMORE AUTUMN DIG
This autumn we aim to do a smaller-scale dig at Colemore during our second investigation of the year at this fascinating site, The geophysics scans we did in the spring have highlighted some very interesting new features near where we usually put our marquee.
