Wessex Archaeology at Work

Back in 1990 a Saxon burial site was discovered on the Grove Farm estate.

Building work was temporarily halted so that Wessex Archaeology could investigate.

The dig uncovered people who lived in the area more than 1000 years ago.

Of course, the archaeologists worked very carefully and methodically.
