Long Wittenham and the Origins of Wessex

Oxford University has started a new archaeological research project on site at the Earth Trust entitled ‘Long Wittenham and the Origins of Wessex’. The project is led by Helena Hamerow, Professor of Early Medieval Archaeology at the Institute of Archaeology.

Find out more about this exciting new project.

Research and Continuing Education

We are also very pleased to announce the use of the Earth Trust site for training purposes for University students in archaeological field walking, excavation and objects conservation. We are welcoming students who are on the MSc in Applied Landscape Archaeology course at Oxford University Continuing Education Department, led by Dr Olaf Bayer. The data will help build upon the evidence-base of archaeological data from the site and provide vital information from which new research questions will evolve.

These exciting new developments are the start of several new research projects and collaborations on site.
