Podcast: Archaeology, history and heritage

Humans (past, present and future) are an integral part of the story of nature and green spaces. From the Iron Age communities who created the hillfort that is now Castle Hill; to the farmers and tenants who manage the land today – the area around Wittenham Clumps has been shaped by human use and intervention throughout the ages.

Earth Trust is celebrating the role that archaeology can play in connecting us to our local landscape.

In this episode, we talk to the archaeology team from DigVentures, who undertook excavations at the Wittenham Clumps site between 2018 and 2022, and hear all about the special event Clumps Go Ancient – Archaeology Festival taking place this summer where they’ll be sharing their exciting finds and bringing archaeology to life.
