Summer seems to be running a little late this year, so with that in mind, we’d like to try something a little different next month, and Dear Reader, we’d like your help to do it!

As regular readers will know, we’re advocates of getting out and seeing our (pre-Roman) archaeological sites as often as possible, and we’ve previously written on how to prepare for and enjoy such visits.

Picnic at Saint-Alban du Rhône photographed by Gabriel Veyre (Flickr), via Wikimedia Commons. Note: We do not condone clambering over monuments. This photo was taken in another age, in another country and does not represent current best practice.

Now, if we can, we’d like to get an idea of how many people are actually visiting the monuments and where they’re going. So if you’re planning a day out (or longer) in September; be it a hike across the moors to see some rock art, a day out with the family to a curated ‘attraction’ such as Stonehenge, a stroll across the local common which has some barrows still visible, or even if you’re working on an archaeological dig somewhere, please let us know.

It would help us immensely if you could fill out our short survey form about your visit, it  would be very much appreciated. All personal details will be held in confidence and not shared with any third parties.

  • Date of visit
  • Site(s) visited
  • Number of people in your party
  • Reason for selecting this site
  • General impressions of the site and your visit

Or feel free to Tweet us or drop us a line via our Facebook Page. We’ll collate statistics for the returns we receive, and will provide summaries of the sites visited. If you’d be happy to write a full blog post about your trip, we’d love to see that too!

We look forward to hearing about your trips throughout next month!
