Gueswick Hills
The weather was dreadful for our first face-to-face meeting of 2023, but it was lovely to meet again after spending the winter months on Zoom. We welcomed several new members who had braved the wind and the rain.

Tony Metcalfe talked to us about Altogether Archaeology’s dig at the Gueswick Hills, near Cotherstone. SWAAG has previously assisted with the geophysical surveying of this site and will be doing so again this year. The structures uncovered in the trenches last summer continue to confirm that this was a substantial Iron Age settlement, protected at one stage by a palisade. Occupation continued through into the Romano-British period, and we were able to see some of the finds dating from that time, which Tony brought along to the meeting. Tony has invited SWAAG members to become involved with this summer’s dig. See the SWAAG activities section for more information.
