Tales of archaeological discoveries wanted

First published in News

ANYONE who was involved in the discovery of the Rockbourne Roman Villa site or the Damerham Archaeology Project, or who knows someone who was, is being urged to contribute their memories and pictures to a special display.

The RocDam Display Project has been launched by the Hampshire Art and Museums Service, with the aim of telling the stories of the discovery.

If you were a volunteer, or have any reminiscences, anecdotes, even photographs of the early days at these sites, the team would love to hear from you.

The display will be made available to local communities in a variety of locations in the Fordingbridge area and beyond.

  •  A Crazy Catapults day is being held at Rockbourne Roman Villa on Sunday, June 2, run by the Arts and Museum Service.

Families are being invited to take part in a hands-on challenge to build a pyramid catapult and practise your aim on the opposing side's Iron Age village. It’s Angry Romans vs Baddie Britons!
