Excavate and discover Bridge Farm, a Romano-British settlement located in East Sussex which was discovered in 2011. Excavation since 2013 has revealed a road network, a possible aisled building, a stone-lined well, a series of industrial hearths and a wealth of postholes, pits and ditches; all very finds-rich with deeper features also producing organic finds such as carved timbers. On 4th December 2019, the project featured in BBC4’s ‘Digging For Britain’. 2023 sees a return to trench 7 in the very centre of the enclosed settlement. The site and adjacent HQ building and campsite is on an arable farm within walk of the village of Barcombe with its general store and pub.
There is an experienced team headed by director Rob Wallace to guide novice diggers and a well-coordinated finds team for those wishing to do processing. Culver Archaeological Project endeavours to include everyone in all aspects of site investigation and recording. The comprehensive undergraduate-level training course seeks to cover all aspects of practical fieldwork offering geophysics, surveying, recording, drawing, photography, environmental and general finds processing, as well as excavation, on this regionally important site. The course whilst open to individuals forms part of the Honours degree programme of Canterbury Christ Church University.
Participants under the age of 16 must be accompanied by an adult.
£30 for 5 days, £50 for 10 days, £100 for season or £50 per week if camping. Training course: £600 (campsite included).
