Buckinghamshire Council Archaeology Day 2022
As part of the Festival of Archaeology and Bucks Open Weekend, Buckinghamshire Council Heritage and Archaeology Team ran an Open Day on July 30th in North Marston.
The residents of North Marston came out en masse when the Buckinghamshire Council Heritage and Archaeology Team ran an Open Day as part of the Festival of Archaeology and Bucks Open Weekend on July 30th. Adults and children enjoyed the activities and displays on offer, whilst guided tours around the village helped promote the Local List project.
With stalls from the Young Archaeologist Club, Buckinghamshire Archaeology Society and the North Marston Historical Society, visitors were able to learn all about the archaeology and built heritage of the county.
The Buckinghamshire Finds Liaison Officer, Edwin, was on hand to identify residents’ mysterious artefacts, with the star find a Palaeolithic handaxe!
