Archaeologists visit Basing House

New Students Trip

Tomorrow I am very excited to be bringing the new intake of undergraduate and postgraduate students in the Department of Archaeology to Basing House! We’re going to be touring the site and talking about this year’s excavation. We’ve only got a couple of hours, so we won’t be able to show the students everything, but it’s an exciting lead up to next year’s plans.

Winter Exhibition

We’ve been planning a winter exhibition for Basing House. The site closes at the end of October, so the venue for the exhibition will be elsewhere in Basingstoke.

Students enrolled on our Presenting the Past module will be taking part in creating the exhibition, as will Winchester School of Art. We’ll be exhibiting the findings from the Spring survey and the Summer excavation, as well as sharing the artworks produced by our Artist-in-Residence and Winchester School of Art artists. There will also be a photography exhibition.

We’re still confirming details, so watch this space for more information…


Kris Strutt has written an interim report about the Spring survey work, which has been published in the International Society
for Archaeological Prospection (ISAP) Newsletter.

It’s not online yet, but it will be available on their website very soon:
