Between the monuments – excavations at Avebury

A joint project between the National Trust (Dr Ros Cleal & Dr Nick Snashall), the University of Southampton (Dr Josh Pollard), University of Leicester (Dr Mark Gillings) andAllen Environmental Archaeology (Dr Mike Allen) is exploring the area around the World Heritage Sites of Avebury and West Kennet to find out more about the ‘everyday’ of the Neolithic and Early Bronze Age.

Using both archive material and state of the art fieldwork methods, the team are hoping to answer some of the fundamental questions we often have about the everyday lives of the people who built and used the monuments.
