The Prehistoric Society

Cranborne Chase Weekend

Astonishingly, it is 12 years since the Society visited Cranborne Chase (apart from our student tour in 2007). Much has happened in the intervening period. This tour will revisit some familiar sites to bring us up to date on new work and discoveries, some new sites, and two major monument and settlement complexes in the Cranborne Chase hinterland. As usual there will be some pracical demonstrations and ‘real’ fieldwork.

The tour will be based in Bournemouth. Unfortunately the Society is no longer able to arrange accommodation but it is intended to base ourselves within easy walking distance of the main railway station and Christchurch Rd area (where our Bournemouth conferences take place). There is plenty of affordable accommodation and a good selection of restaurants.
