Worcestershire Archive and Archaeology Service are carrying out an archaeological excavation in Broadway as part of the works for the Environment Agency's Badsey Brook Flood risk management scheme. It's proving to be an exciting site!
We're holding two open days, on Friday 18th November and Monday 21st November, 10:00-16:00. It's an opportunity for residents to come along and visit the excavation, talk to our archaeologists, handle some of the finds, and find out about the fascinating history of their local area at first hand.
We've got evidence of some of Broadway's earliest known residents, Mesolithic hunter-gatherers living here around 10,000 years ago. The main focus of the site is a complex Iron Age and Roman settlement, with fantastic Roman finds emerging.

Stout footwear is advised, as the site may be muddy! Visitors should gather by the site cabins next to the car park, where artefacts will be on display. Tours of the site, starting from the site cabins, will be conducted by the archaeologists.
There's no need to book – just drop in and find out more about the thousands of years of history beneath your feet!
