Volunteers for Henge Excavation in Hertfordshire

The Norton Community Archaeology Group (NCAG) are seeking 50 volunteers to help supervise and participate in the excavation of a Neolithic henge site to the east of Letchworth, Hertfordshire. First uncovered in 2010, it may be the oldest henge found outside the West Country and of “national significance” according to Anne Teather of the University of Chester. A range of animal bones, flints and ceramics have been found in undisturbed contexts despite plough damage to the bank, which would have once been 1.5m high.

For more information about the excavation and membership of NCAG, please see their website here. If you have any queries or questions, please contact Phil Dean at philipdean2@btinternet.com.
