Thursday 28th September 2017 – Marlow lecture: Highwood

Invitation from Archaeology in Marlow

Highwood: the mound and other mysteries

by Andrew Allum of South Oxfordshire Archaeological Society (SOAG)

In 2015 member of South Oxfordshire Archaeology Group started to excavate a Roman site In Harpsden near Henley-on-Thames. The site had been the subject of an earlier excavation very nearby between 1977 and 1983 when Henley-on-Thames Archaeological & Historical Group excavated a mound on the site. When the later excavation started the record of the earlier excavation was interrogated and in turn that led to researching the history of the wood. The excavation started in 2015 is continuing. It is uncovering Iron Age and Roman remains from between 0 and 400 AD. However, the site remains enigmatic. The talk will seek to explain the work carried out so far and suggest possible interpretations.
