Over 200 visitors attended the site open day to the public today!
Both the information point at the Hub and the excavation site in Ipplepen received over 100 enthusiastic members of the public interested in exploring the recent archaeological excavations. Visitors travelled from all over Devon to see the new developments in the discovery of the Romano-British settlement. Archaeologists working at the site believe the settlement may have been occupied as early as the Bronze Age though this is subject to further analysis and identification. Finds include pottery sherds, charcoal, slag deposit, flint and animal bones. The last day of the excavation will take place tomorrow and the information point at the Hub will close tomorrow at 4pm.
