The Dorstone Dig

Event 443 Venue: The Oxfam Moot

Julian Thomas

Digging on Dorstone Hill over the last couple of summers, the archaeological team have uncovered two 6,000-year-old burial mounds and the remains of two huge halls that appear to have been ritually burned down. Thomas, who leads the excavations, talks about what they’ve found and the Neolithic traditions of houses for the living and houses for the dead.
