Illuminating the past – Enhancing the present – Inspiring the future

Lyminge Archaeological Project

Archaeologists from the University of Reading, along with local volunteers, archaeological societies and university students have worked at Lyminge each summer since 2008 to uncover Lyminge’s Anglo-Saxon past. The final excavation season finished at the end of August 2015.

Lyminge archaeological project

Our involvement at Lyminge began in 2005 when a team from the Trust uncovered Anglo-Saxon occupation on land south of the churchyard. In 2007 Gabor Thomas (University of Reading) began a study of the site which developed into the Lyminge Archaeological Project.  As a partner in the project, the Trust has been actively involved with the excavations and in outreach work in the community and local schools.

The project blog gives a great insight into project as it unfolded.
