Delancey Park

Delancey Park on the island of Guernsey is a Neolithic gallery grave. One of only three in the Channel Islands, it comprises two parallel lines of stone that extend for around nine-and-a-half metres from east to west, and this year Clifford Antiquarian Club began excavations on the site with some promising results.

With only limited display and storage space the Wallingford museum in England made plans to build a timber frame extension to their existing medieval building. In order to fulfil that dream, the townsfolk of Wallingford joined ranks to raise the necessary funds to give their museum a whole new lease of life.

Thanx for this, great issue! I found the report on the 51 bodies in Weymouth of particular interest because I was working for Oxford Archaeology on the Weymouth project at the time they were found. I was'nt digging on that part of the project but on a site just up the road (worse luck!), we did pop down in our lunch hour now and again to see how things were progressing though. Its great to get an update, thanx again!
