Dig of megalithic tombs planned in the Channel Islands
Archaeological work is to be carried out on Herm in the Channel Islands (Great Britain). Professor Chris Scarre, who has already undertaken work on Jethou, plans to examine the megalithic tombs on the larger island. The professor is a specialist on the prehistory of western Europe and has a particular interest in the archaeology of the Channel Islands. He has been given a £135,000 grant to explore the buried prehistoric land surface of Herm. The Arts and Humanities Research Council grant will fund the two-year project, beginning this summer. Mr Scarre is a Professor of Archaeology at Durham University.
