New archaeological website for Somerset
Somerset County Council is launching a website which lists all archaeological sites in the county, from pill boxes to Stone Age sites. The site will be launched at two demonstrations hosted by the Council’s Archaeological Outreach Officer Talya Bagwell, at Burnham Library on Friday 5 March and at Williton Library on Monday 8 March. Both events will run from 9.30am to 4.30pm. Also present will be Elaine Howard Jones from the Somerset and Dorset Finds Liaison Team, who will help identify objects that have been found locally.
Paddy McMaster, from the County Council’s Culture and Community Department, says of the launch events: “This is a great opportunity for interested locals to discover more about the history which may be lurking under their feet. People who bring objects for identification will also be adding more to our knowledge, building up the general picture of Somerset in the past”.
For further information contact Talya Bagwell on +44 (0)1823 355693. The new website can be found at www.somerset.gov.uk/heritage.
