This is the part of the web-site for fans of Time Team! If this is your area of interest, we would really like to hear from you.

The archaeology of East Ilsley is starting to be researched by the Society and covers four areas to date:

  • Landscape archaeology - looking at how the local landscape has changed over the centuries with farming practices. This is closely linked to the land usage.
  • Earthworks surveys - recording the 'lumps & bumps' that are still visible on the surface of open areas. So far Pen Meadow has been surveyed
  • Geophysics surveys - using 'geophys' to try to identify archaeology that is hidden from view. Some preliminary work is looking promising.
  • Archaeological digs - uncovering the past in your back garden!
