Our sponsored PhD student Ethan Greenwood is planning his post-doctoral project, which will look further into Roman sites in the Weald. In these restricted times it will not be possible for him to call on prospective owners of sites to seek access to them, so he is appealing to WIRG members for help in identifying who owns some of these sites.
Details of the Roman sites can be found by following THIS LINK.
If you know a person who owns one or more of these sites, please pass on their contact details (address, phone number or email) to Ethan Greenwood so he can get in touch with them.
Foray postponed due to site conditions, Field Group members will be contacted once date is fixed.

What is a Foray?
A foray includes field walking to identify possible iron-working sites. In favourable cases, this is followed up by excavation to further explore the layout of the site and to find dating evidence.
