New book on Kemerton Dig

Robin Jackson with his new book on Huntsman's Quarry, Kemerton


The earliest village we've found in Worcestershire is the subject of a new book by Robin Jackson, a member of staff in our Worcestershire Archaeology team. At Kemerton our archaeologists discovered evidence of settlement 3,000 years ago, not just traces of occupation, but groups of huts, the earliest we know about in the county. It also provided an important collection of prehistoric pottery. The book has been published by Oxbow Book, with the support of Historic England. Copies will be on sale soon in our shop, which you can visit on Level 2 at The Hive
