Stonehenge survey A student surveys the Stonehenge landscape  

A group of second year students from the Archaeology and Historic Environment Group have been out surveying the landscape around Stonehenge this summer. The students have been working to complete a geophysical survey near the monument, and their results form an essential part of the Stonehenge Riverside Project. This large scale collaborative project that is jointly directed by Bournemouth, Bristol, Manchester and Sheffield Universities, and University College London and is represented at Bournemouth by Dr Kate Welham and Mark Dover.

Dr Kate Welham said that "This is a fantastic opportunity for our students to develop their professional skills and to be involved in an important, high profile project. They have been engaging with the public on our open days and have also been in the media spotlight, as National Geographic are filming a documentary of the project this summer."
