Archaeology

Marcham Society has a strong tradition in actively taking part in local digs and the dissemination of the findings through talks, exhibitions and, of course, our magazine “Coral Rag“

In the most recent Coral Rag 10, Steve Nicholson and Sheila Tilley have written an update to Roger Gelder's article of Field-walking in Big Leas from Coral Rag 7 (2007).
