  • Absolutely brilliant! We were lucky enough to be here for one of the open days. To be able to handle finds from the site was a real privilege and made the site come to life. The site itself is impressive, but going on the tour is the highlight as the site and its contents are explained thoroughly by the archaeologists. An absolute gem of a site of world importance that needs understanding and protecting. Buy the guide book, sponsor a square, donate something. Do what you can to help.
  • Fascinating place. The latest, most important archaeological finds in the northern hemisphere probably. Free to enter and free 1 hour talk from archaeologists. They need funding so help the dig by sponsoring a square metre so they can uncover the rest. Only 10% done so far. It's important. Interesting, amazing place.
  • Very interesting, archeologist gives good talk, but very locked into standard interpretation model, little imagination or interest in other possible perspectives or interpretations. Well worth a visit next dig season.
  • We make a point of visiting here each time we visit, the developments in such a short time of digging are incredible. The tours are so informative and the guides are so energised and passionate and ready to answer questions from, sometimes, very large groups. Every year, we hold our mouths open in awe at some mew piece of information and speculation. This is an incredible place and deeply humbling to find. These are our ancestors. Of all humans.
  • Great archaeological dig that is well worth a visit. The guided tour was interesting and helped the site make sense. I loved being able to adopt a square on the site and hope something is found there.
