Projects

In addition to the Peasemore Project and the Devil's Highway Project, which have their own pages, 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. If you would like to join in a project you will find contact details for the project leader at the foot of each project page.
