In addition to the Roman Boxford Project, which will shortly have its own page, BARG also runs a series of other research projects across the county. Typically BARG projects are either focussed on the investigation of an individual site (e.g. Spencer's Farm), or a particular interest throughout Berkshire (e.g. Dovecotes).
Each BARG Project has a designated leader and a project plan setting out objectives, methods and timescales. The following menu provides links to the pages for each project. Not all of the projects listed here are currently active, but if you would like to join in a project or find out more about it, you will find contact details for the project leader at the foot of each project page.
