Digging Deep: Dartmoor's Archaeological Excavations
Andy is a professional archaeologist working with both Dartmoor National Park and Historic England.
His talk will focus on archaeological discoveries that have influenced our understanding of Dartmoor’s past. Covering several interesting digs, and the artefacts they revealed, he will describe excavations at key sites such as Grimspound, Double Barrows, Holne Moor, Roundy Pound near Kestor, and Shaugh Moor.
This Zoom meeting starts 7:00 PM, giving us half an hour to get set up and to check that everything is running ok. Andy's talk will start at 7:30 PM
There are approximately 5 meetings with speakers each year and at least one field excursion. Meetings take place in Harberton or Harbertonford on alternative dates, details of which can be found in the Programme.
Members of the Society have gathered information on the past history of the villages, personalities and the Parish including the preparation of historic walks around both Harberton and Harbertonford. The Society is making collections of photographs and some artefacts and have embarked on an oral history project to build an archive of first hand histories in both villages.
The Society is keen to receive photographs/articles/family records for the archives which can also be added to our website.
