Exhibition

Oundle Museum now has a small exhibition with some of the artefacts found during our excavations at Nassington in 2016-2018, including

  • an ox-skull found at the bottom of an IronAge ditch
  • a large, partially reconstructed, mortarium
  • part of a jet bracelet, with a very similar design to others found at Hungate, York
  • part of a child's copper bracelet
  • quernstones
  • plus, aerial photos and geophysical survey plots and interpretations, and
  • a summary of the excavations so far

Head upstairs to see the exhibition, opposite the Remand Cell. The Museum also has plenty of other archaeological exhibits, especially from Ashton Roman town, just outside Oundle itself.

Excavation

We will return to Nassington for our fourth year of excavations (exact location still to be determined). Thanks to everyone who responded to our appeal for volunteer diggers. We're now full up and have about as many people as we can look after on site each day.

Venue: Nassington, Northamptonshire.
