At Windsor’s Guildhall a new exhibition of finds from the Wessex Archaeology excavation in nearby Horton went on show today. ┬áThe Neolithic, Bronze age, Iron Age and Roman artefacts will be on display in Windsor town centre for the next 12 months.

I spent the morning in town, handing out fliers about the finds and delivering three proclamtions. Then at midday I popped back to the Guildhall to welcome the Mayor and Mayoress, Andrew and Julia Jenner who had come to take a closer look at the finds.

The archaeological dig yielded some surprising finds, most notably the remains of some of the earliest houses ever built in England.

There was lots of information about the dig and what they had learned so far.

The site owners have agreed to allow the dig to continue for a further year so more treasures may yet emerge from the ground.
