The Time Travellers Archaeology Group will be offering an opportunity to find out about recent ‘Discoveries at Whirlow Hall Farm’ as part of this year’s UK-wide Festival of Archaeology.

The event will offer two introductory sessions on the recent Roman and prehistory discoveries at Whirlow Hall Farm Trust. Each will include an introductory talk, display of finds, guided walk and a visit to the excavation site.

Following the initial discovery of the Roman site during 2011, The Time Travellers group gained a £60.000 HLF grant to return to the site, to further excavate its Roman and Iron Age remains. Field walking and geophysical surveys expanded knowledge of the areas prehistory and discovered the site of a Roman signal station on what was until recently a forgotten Roman frontier.whirlow
