Our Current Project
In 2016 we carried out a Geophysical Survey with Bournemouth University at Blackdown near Hardys Monument to determine whether we could find any evidence for buildings supporting the hypothesis that this was a Roman Signalling Station.
Blackdown Final Report
We are carrying out a winter desktop project to identify sites of visual Signal Stations in Dorset through the ages.
