4 July 2009

Saturday 4th July 2009 marks the 40th anniversary of the beginning of the archaeological excavations at Crickley Hill in Gloucestershire. More than 3,000 volunteers from all over the world worked on the site between 1969 and 1994 - 25 successive seasons of digging.

The excavations were directed throughout by Dr Philip Dixon, former Reader in Archaeology at the University of Nottingham. The Secretary to the excavation was Richard Savage.

It is proposed that there should be a reunion to mark the 40th anniversary of the excavations and this blog has been created to allow the many people who worked at Crickley over the years to find out about, plan and participate in the reunion.
