Digging up the Past

This book was written by Janet Firth, Chairman of the Berkshire Archaeology Research Group and former Field Research Co-ordinator, with a contribution by Steve Clark, former Newsletter Editor and joint leader of the Peasemore Landscape Archaeology Project.

Now independent, BARG began life as the Berkshire Archaeological Society’s Field Research Group in 1958. Its members were involved with some of the most important excavations in the old Royal County. Despite boundary changes, reorganisations and the rise of professional units, the Group is still flourishing and continues to carry out active archaeological research.
