Recording Mesolithic Wood

On Tuesday 12th September the Maritime Archaeology Trust is running a special session on learning how to record the Mesolithic wood recovered from the submerged settlement site at Bouldnor Cliff! The session will take place 10-4pm at the National Oceanography Centre's core store in Southampton.

Not only do you get to learn about this process but you also have an opportunity to handle real wood from the site. This is an aspect of our work as maritime archaeologists that is rarely seen by the public.

Unfortunately due to the space restrictions in the laboratory, they have a limited number of five spaces available. This will be handled on a 'first-comes-first' basis. If you are interested in attending, please contact Jan Gillespie on
