Gallery talk by David Griffiths and Jane Harrison on HLF funded East Oxford community archaeology and history project.
Since 2010 the Heritage-Lottery Funded East Oxford Community Archaeology and History Project has been up and running, providing a way for people of all ages and backgrounds to get actively involved in researching the landscape and history of the ‘other’ Oxford, east of the Cherwell, where few tourists venture (as yet!) but which is full of hidden and not-so hidden archaeological and historical interest. Targets so far have included studying historic villages, earthworks, a medieval leper hospital, a collection of prehistoric flints, and excavating a Victorian bottle dump.
Free. Location: Pitt Rivers Museum, Entry via Oxford University Museum of Natural History, Parks Road, Oxford OX1 3PW.
