Excavations at Bagendon, near Cirencester, UK.
In 2012 and 2013, students from HCC joined fellow undergraduates from Durham University to support the research excavations of Dr. Tom Moore. Dr. Moore's examination of the prehistoric landscape around Bagendon (Glous.) has involved extensive magnetometry survey and targeted excavations of an apparent 'banjo' style enclosure, in order to better interpret the complex of landscape features associated with the Late iron-Age 'territorial oppidum' of the area.
