Test digs in Alderney

Undertook two quick test digs on Longis Common, Alderney. One by the Nunnery was looking to explain a depression (a 19th century road?) and a mound (a sand dune). The other sampled the previously fertile site at the Kennals where Roman deposits still lurk within a metre of the surface.

  1. Dear Jason, is it all possible to know, re Longis Common, who were the group from the UK digging a Gallo-Roman site there in the 1950s, finds from which I see were recently given to the Alderney Society? I might be able to help with any ‘who’s who’ queries, from my current research.

      1. Oddly enough, I’d heard of the FOC a few years ago, when I was fondly reminiscing about a museum club I’d belonged to as a boy, only to have it dismissed as a ‘poor McCopy’ of the original FOC … did they not have some London region archaeological
        connection, Francis Celora-era too? I’d be interested to see a copy of the Alderney report, please. Good crisply-written blog by the way – very ‘you’, rather than generic.
