Focus Area 1: Wor Barrrow
Wor barrow is one of a number of earthen Neolithic long barrows on Cranborne Chase.
Pitt Rivers excavations here were arguably his most ambitious. We will be helping improve the condition of the Wor Barrow and investigating the fields around it.
An Iron Age hillfort and associated sites excavated by Pitt-Rivers in AD1881. Six refuse pits were found and the site of a hut with remains of wattle and daub recorded. We will investigate the area around the hillfort using geophysics.

Investigated by Colt Hoare , the area features Iron Age earthworks and a circular enclosure excavated several times. The area also contains a Roman settlement. We will reinvestigate the earthworks and explore the archaeology in the adjacent woodlands.
