BUTSER ANCIENT FARM TRIP
3rd SEPTEMBER 2017
BHAS Members - £25 Non-members £28
We hope to get to Butser around 11.00-11.30am. We will have a guided tour of the reconstructed buildings for around one and a half hours. Then we can eat our picnic lunch, and we will be free to spend time investigating the ancient farm on our own. Tea and cakes will be provided before we leave. We will leave around 4-4.30pm and get back to Brighton around 6pm, depending on the traffic.
The maximum number of people will be 30 for the group tour (although it will be possible to arrange a second group tour if necessary), so it will be first-come-first-served and only a cheque will reserve a seat on the coach.
The fee of £25 includes coach, entry fee, guided tour and afternoon tea.

BHAS Excavations 2017
Pete Tolhurst is the leader of the geophysics and surveying Team. In December a small survey of part of Preston Park, Brighton was conducted in conjunction with Brighton University. The university conducted a major magnetometry survey over most of the park. BHAS conducted resistivity surveying in parts of the park deemed inaccessible for magnetometry.
New surveying is being planned for this season. These projects include surveying a field close to Ovingdean that has produced both Medieval and Roman finds, a survey on Beacon Hill at Rottingdean focused on a Neolithic long barrow and at Patcham to examine earthworks which may be part of a 'Celtic' field system. BHAS are also planning to return to Hempstead Farm, near Uckfield, for more investigations into that medieval landscape. All volunteers are welcome, whatever theor experience. All training will be given.
