The Avalon Archaeology ‘Hands on Heritage’ project celebrates the archaeological work undertaken by the South West Heritage Trust in the Avalon Marshes area of Somerset.
This work involves community archaeology projects, experimental archaeology and the creation of replica building of different periods at the Avalon Marshes Centre. The Saxon longhall and Roman villa dining-room have been created by the HoH volunteer group. They will eventually be open to the public and school groups for educational work as the ‘Avalon Archaeology Park’. Opening is planned for early 2019.

The ‘Hands on Heritage’ project was developed as part of the Avalon Marshes Landscape Partnership scheme; a three-year venture funded by the Heritage Lottery Fund.
