New website for the Wildmore Fen project

Posted on 26 January 2018

The project is led by the University of York and explores the Neolithic Landscape of Lincolnshire and beyond

A new website has been launched for the Wildmore Fen project. Started in 2017, the project's aim is to hunt for a possible Neolithic Cursus monument, and to better understand the middle Neolithic landscape of the area.

Neolithic studies in the British Isles for many years have focused on Wessex and to a lesser extent the Orkney Islands. Lincolnshire is situated between the well-known archaeology of southern England and the better researched Neolithic of Yorkshire. It is therefore a key lacuna in knowledge for researchers attempting to assess the spread of the Neolithic in the UK and the regional diversity of the Neolithic more broadly.


The project coordinators are Dr Penny Bickle and Dr Peter Chowne, supported by  Dr Helen Goodchild and Dr Carol Lang. As the project progresses other researchers and specialists will join the team. We believe in sharing our research and welcome community involvement. Go the the Get Involved page to register your interest!
