Already the archaeology Master's students from the Oxford University Department for Continuing Education are assembling for their survey week which begins on the 27th of June. they will be doing a variety of non-invasive surveys around the village, doing geophysics (know popularly as 'geofizz') and GPS work and topographical survey. A buildings survey is also planned. More details will be reported as the Survey Week shapes up. there will be a public Open Evening in the Village Hall on Thursday July 1, from 6-8pm.
