The village lies at the heart of what has been described as one of the most important prehistoric landscapes in Europe, where our ancestors commemorated their dead in barrows high on the Ridgeway. Join Hayley Roberts, an archaeologist at Bournemouth University, for an illustrated talk exploring the field systems, settlements and burial monuments which are all clues hidden in the landscape. There will also be an opportunity to get involved in discussions about the future of archaeology in Portesham and how you can get involved in new research - this place was very special indeed to our ancestors and we need your help to make sure it remains so for future generations to celebrate and enjoy.
