The WDDAG committee are investigating the possibility of a 2 year landscape project for the group. The aim is to uncover the land-use and settlement development from prehistory to the present day of part of south west Dorset.
If permission is granted the project will involve using aerial photographs, LIDAR results, documentary and museum research and field and geophysical survey.
Carefully targeted limited excavation would be used to obtain dating, environmental and economic evidence.
Local involvement will be an important part of the project, working in partnership with WDDAG.
The overall results will uncover the story of this particular area over 10,000 and told through talks, guided walks, local exhibitions and publication via the internet and in print.
The exact location cannot be told at present, but this is an exciting project for the near future which will involve local people researching unique local heritage for Dorset people, now and in the future.
