Oxford Archaeology Open Day at Horcott Quarry, Saturday March 15th 2008

Roman Building

Despite the inclement weather a huge number of people attended the Oxford Archaeology (collaboration with Hanson) Open Day at the Horcott Quarry site. There were with guided tours, a marquee with a display of artefacts and literature. Our group was lucky enough to be taken round by Granville Laws, the Project Leader. He considered it to be one of the most important sites in the area with evidence of habitation from 800 BC – 800AD, Iron Age through Roman to Saxon. For a more detailed article see Historical Topics.
