Neolithic finds on display in Gloucestershire
Neolithic stone axe finds from the Forest created huge interest at a county conference held at Five Acres (Gloucestershire, England). The event, in the Royal Forest of Dean College theatre, was organised by the Committee for Archaeology in Gloucestershire and featured several visiting speakers.
Lydney's Dr Alf Webb, president of Dean Archaeology Group, said: "We were celebrating 21 years of archaeological work in the Forest. I talked about my flint finds and we took along a display case of all the Neolithic stone axe samples DAG members have unearthed locally. These provoked a great deal of interest among the people who attended the conference."
The next major DAG event is the Shovellers' Shindig at the Royal British Legion Club in Lydney on March 11 next year.
