Beacons of the Past: Chilterns Hillforts

14 Jul 2018 2018 10:00 to 15 2018 12:00:


Beacons of the Past: Chilterns Hillforts is an exciting project which will engage and inspire communities to discover, conserve, and enjoy the Chilterns' Iron Age hillforts and their prehistoric chalk landscapes.


The Chilterns has one of the largest collections of hillforts in the UK, yet many are poorly preserved, and little is known about them. Supported and part-funded by the Heritage Lottery Fund, this 4 year project will provide a real focus for community and public involvement through remote sensing and survey, practical excavation, and research as well as a programme of events and educational activities.  


To explain more about the project and answer any questions the Hillforts team are holding "meet and greet" sessions on the 14th and 15th July 2018 at different locations in the region.


The itinerary for the day is as follows:


  • 30 minute introductory talk from Dr. Wendy Morrison, Project Manager and Ed Peveler, Landscape Heritage Officer discussing what the project entails and ways people can get involved.
  • 30 minute Q&A: a chance for you to ask any questions
  • 60 minute tea and cake, mingling, discussions and some small displays

Dates and locations are as follows:
