Maiden Newton Archaeology

Hidden Maiden Newton

Maiden Newton has a long and varied history and much has been researched or dug from the earth in past decades to piece together some of the story of the village that we call home. But many more questions still need to be answered.

As an archaeologist I want to know more. Documents can only tell us so much and it is only archaeology that can fill in the gaps. I would like to see a project, or projects, where local people can be active in finding their past, just a few inches under all our feet.

If you feel the same and wish to add more pieces to the jigsaw that is the past of Maiden Newton then please contact me and leave a message. Any ideas welcome.

Who knows what we might find!
