Sensing the Iron Age and Roman Past: Geophysics and the Landscape of Hertfordshire

On this page we’ll be posting about a fantastic project.  Funded by the Arts and Humanities Research Council and run by Kris Lockyear, Ph.D.,   Senior Lecturer at the Institute of Archaeology, UCL, the aim of the project is to conduct archaeological magnetometry survey on a number of Late Iron Age and Roman sites throughout Hertfordshire.  We will be surveying a range of sites — from small farmsteads to the city of Verulamium (modern St. Albans).

This project is a collaboration between the Institute of Archaeology, UCL and a number of local heritage groups, including the Welwyn Archaeological Society, the North Herts Archaeological Society, the East Herts Archaeological Society, the St. Albans and Hertfordshire Architectural and Archaeological Society, the Berkhamstead and District Archaeological Society, the West Essex Archaeological Group, the Welwyn Hatfield Museum Service, the St. Albans Museum Service, the St. Albans District Council, the Hertfordshire Historical Environment Department, the Wheathampstead Historical Society, the Welwyn Hatfield Young Archaeologists Club and the St. Albans Young Archaeologists Club.

    Hi there,

    My name is Ruth and I’m the Marketing Executive for Aubrey Park Hotel in Redbourn. We were wondering if you’d be interested in knowing more about our Iron Age Fort that dates back 350 BC

    We have plans to reopen the fort to the public, and would love to have you on board!
