What’s underneath The Swan’s new home?

The archaeology of the site of The Swan School will be uncovered this weekend.

Preparation work on the permanent site at Marston started last month and archaeological excavations are being carried out ahead of construction.

Experts from Cotswold Archaeology will be on hand to explain what they have found so far between 10am and around 3pm this Saturday (April 27th).

Features of interest uncovered include a series of ditches dating from Iron Age, Roman and Medieval times.

There will be four separate sessions for up to 30 people per time, with the last session starting at 2pm. Spaces will be available on the day on a first come, first served basis, but you can book a place here.

Anyone wishing to attend will need to wear suitable footwear, with walking boots or wellingtons essential.

The sessions are free and are suitable for all ages.

Access to the site will be along Raymund Road, Marston, via the car park for Meadowbrook College.
