Perham Down 2016

Perham Down 2016
July saw members of BGH head to Perham Down WW1 practice trenches with the aim of learning more about this area and to what extent the trenches replicated real trenches?

The project was a complete success as we were able to answer all of these questions and more as the area is preserved in a pristine condition under the topsoil and left us all wanting to go back for more. 

Wessex Archaeology provided the expert commercial support and under their supervision participants were not only able to build on their archaeological skills, they were also able to get their all-important Skills Passport filled in too.
