Thursday 13th July 2017 – Visit to Wessex Archaeology and Marden Henge

Marden Henge (also known as Hatfield Earthworks) is the largest Neolithic henge enclosure discovered to date in the United Kingdom. The monument is located in Marden, Wiltshire, situated within the Vale of Pewsey between the World Heritage sites of Avebury and Stonehenge.

Since 2015 it has been the site of the University of Reading Field School.

We will meet at Wessex Archaeology, Old Sarum at 10.45 for 11.00 am to have a guided tour of the Neolithic finds by Wessex Archaeology.

Lunch will follow and then we travel to Marden Henge for a tour of this year’s excavation.
