Basing House CAT Project

The Basing House CAT Project is a collaboration between University of Southampton Archaeology Department, Hampshire County Council Museums Service, and Winchester School of Art.

The initial phases of the project consist of a student training survey, to take place over March and April 2013, and a student training excavation, taking place over July to August 2013.

The project aims to consolidate survey work carried out in the past at the site, and also to contribute to understanding the place of the site of Basing House within the broader historical and archaeological landscape.

The excavations (beginning July 2013) aim to build on knowledge about the earlier phases of the archaeology of the house pre-16th century.

The project website will provide up-to-date information on the project as it develops.
