  • Internal banks and ditches
  • Braided tracks
  • Charcoal platforms
  • Quarries
  • Working areas
  • Dams
  • Moated settlements

Along with many other unknown / unidentified features!

By the end of the day delegates will be able to:

  • Identify a range of archaeological features.
  • Grasp the extent and fragility of the archaeology found in woods and parkland.
  • Appreciate the role trees play in understanding the history of landscapes.
  • Learn how such features can be protected.
  • Observe archaeology within living trees

The whole day will be spent in open woodland and de legates should dress accordingly. Delegates should bring their own packed lunch, which they should be able to carry into the wood. Fresh stove-brewed tea and coffee will be provided during the lunch break.
