The Stonehenge Riverside Project

 

Seven members of the Society went down to Durrington Walls on Saturday 9th September to see Mike Parker-Pearson's Stonehenge Riverside Project. This is an ongoing project, covering several years already and interim reports may be found from the links below. We met at Old Sarum and were fortunate enough to be visiting on Heritage Day, so we were able to visit the site for free. After lunch we moved on to Durrington where we met up with Phil Harding, of Time Team fame, who was giving a flint knapping demonstration. After a brief conversation with Mike Parker-Pearson, we were shown around the various dig sites. It was all very fascinating and we are promised a talk on the dig by one of the co-directors, Dr. Julian Thomas, at the end of November. A wonderful and rare opportunity to see a Neolithic excavation in progress.
