Quantocks Village Test Pitting

We are conducting test pit excavations in villages around the fringes of the Quantock Hills Landscape, Somerset. This is part of the Quantock Landscape Partnership Scheme and we will be working together with local residents and the AONB. We hope to improve our  understanding of the development of these villages during the medieval and post-medieval periods.


Our aims are to:

• Enhance current understandings of medieval and post-medieval village development in the Quantock landscape;

• To identify artefacts and features that might indicate foci of activity, which do not necessarily relate to extant or known buildings.

•  Teach people about the history of the landscape of the Quantock fringe through a high-quality archaeological experience.
