Mesolithic site found in East Surrey


Sounds great until you hear it was only discovered because someone wants to turn the site into a quarry..

An excavation has turned up flint tools and cooking pots from about 10,000 years ago at a site on the North Downs in Surrey... continues...

Hascombe Hill (Promontory Fort) — Miscellaneous

This pleasingly wooded promontory fort is, according to Surrey Archaeological Society,"a roughly trapezoidal enclosure with the long axis lying north-east/south-west. The position of the earthworks is governed by the shape of the end of the ridge except where their north-eastern leg cuts perpendicularly across the length of the ridge. This north-eastern leg of the ramparts contains the entrance which is set off-centre towards the north-west, and has short out-turned banks on either side".

Details of a 2008/2009 survey undertaken by the Society can be seen online at:

Stanwell Cursus — Links

Robert Grant's stats blog: citizen science, R and the Heathrow Cursus


A blog post I made where I visit the cursus (Feb 2016) and elastic-band my phone to a floor sweeper / magic mop and then bodge together a bit of programming (open source, therefore free) to give a fine measure of the surface of the cursus. A slow way of mapping endangered surfaces, but accessible to all.
