NEHHAS - Excavations

NEHHAS has a long history of conducting excavations at various local sites and is always looking for further archaeological opportunities in our area. The photos below show a small part of a rescue dig conducted in May 2009 by NEHHAS members at Tower Hill, Cove during a brief cessation of a contractor's site clearance work.

Also, during the summers of 2012 and 2014, NEHHAS and BARG carried out joint ground survey/geophysics exercises in Greywell, Hants. Outline results for 2012 are shown here.

An ex-NEHHAS member has formed his own group retaining the acronym 'NEHHAS' in the name and as part of their website address which ends "". We have made numerous requests for them to change the name but to no avail. The Field Archaeology Branch is NOT connected with us at NEHHAS and their activities are NOT covered by our insurance. We ceased involvement in Roman Road investigation back in 2009. For a recently re-edited report on the work prior to 2009 see Finding the Road on our Publications page.

Some other organisations able to offer archaeological training and experience are given on our "events" page. These include Sussex School of Archaeology and CBA - Wessex Academy for Field Archaeology, click here.
