‘Archaeology in your Backyard’

The North Herts Archaeological Society presented a display at the ‘Archaeology in Your Backyard’ event at Bassingbourn Village College on 7th July 2007. The display told the story of the discovery of a Romano-British temple treasure by a metal detectorist and the subsequent investigations and excavations which took place over the following 4 years. Gil Burleigh, the Society’s Field Officer, presented a lecture on the subject of ‘The Royston Mile Ditches and other Iron Age multiple-ditched territorial boundaries on the Icknield Belt in the eastern Chilterns’.
