Unrepeatable chance to visit medieval village site - next Thursday 14 July

Next Thursday (14 July) the excavations of part of the medieval village of Stone will be open for visitors. This is an unrepeatable opportunity because the site is for housing development, so will be in all likelihood destroyed once the builders move in.

The village of Stone, which is west of Aylesbury on the A418 road towards Oxford, dates from before the Norman Conquest of 1066. The archaeologists have found tenement plots near the church, including a possible smithy and a kiln or oven.

The site will be open for visitors on Thursday 14 July between 10am and 3pm. If you can get along there it will be worth the visit. (Those of us who visited a similar site at Aston Clinton two years ago will be aware that this is now built over and the newly-built houses there are for sale!)

Here is the flyer from Archaeological Solutions with details of how to find the site:
