The PLACE Archaeological Field School 2019

Date: Monday 10 June to Friday 5 July 2019

Time: Monday to Friday for 4 weeks

Location: Corfe Castle, Dorset

Event Description:

The Field School is part of the PLACE project which is an archaeological investigation that aims to understand the communities who inhabited the southern fringes of Poole Harbour from Prehistory to today. Focusing on later prehistory and early medieval period, the 2019 season will explore the relationship between harbourside communities and the wider landscape and investigates their role within the networks of connectivity afforded to them by the harbour. 

The fieldwork takes place within Purbeck, a county of outstanding natural beauty and one of the best preserved archaeological landscapes in Britain. The project is run as a Bournemouth University summer field school.
