Brownsea Island

Ancient Village / Settlement / Misc. Earthwork


Although there are no specific sites on the island it has been shown to have been occupied since 500 bce. It has been excavated several times, Iron Age pottery and metal working waste have been found. Also a wooden boat mentioned in the news section of this Dorset part of TMA was dredged up very close to the island while clearing the channel between it and the mainland. formicaant Posted by formicaant
