Dowbridge

Although not one of our digs, the site at Dowbridge is bringing up some very interesting finds.  A full report will be published in the fullness of time but, for the moment, we have a few comments and images.

This is the aerial view of the site, taken after the 2019 excavation.

The 2018 excavation uncovered this wooden construction.  Explanations range from a trackway through to a fish trap.

Probably a bronze age cup & ring but the hole seems very deep.

This appears to be the base of a furnace.  Samples were taken to further identify the use.

Possibly the most interesting of the features uncovered show an elongated, Romano-British round house.  There is a raised up section towards one end.  Could this be an alter?  The final report should reveal all.
