News from excavations at Barnham, West Sussex

A selection of potsherds from the Barnham excavations.

Excavations undertaken by ASE over the past month in Barnham, West Sussex have revealed a sequence of Roman farmstead enclosures and potential pre-enclosure phase of activities. The main period of occupation spans the first to second centuries AD and may have started in the late Iron Age before the Roman conquest in AD43.

The site has been attracting interest from the local and national news.
