A FASCINATING talk will reveal the findings of an archaeological dig.

Six excavations have taken place at Petersfield Heath on ancient burial mounds.

Amanda Harwood, from Petersfield Museum, said: ‘The trenches yielded artefacts ranging from a Bronze Age dagger to a plastic knife and fork, from flint tools to a cricket ball. But what can all these things tell us about who lived and died on the Heath?’

The free talk will be given by archaeologist George Anelay from 6pm on April 23 at Festival Hall, Petersfield. To book call 01730 260756.
