Borough Hill

Archaeologists Tell The Story of Daventry’s First Settlements

Did you know that Daventry’s Borough Hill is the site of one of the biggest ancient hill forts in Britain, dating back over 2000 years?

A collaborative project between Museum of London Archaeology (MOLA) and Northamptonshire’s Community Landscape Archaeological Survey Project (C.L.A.S.P.), is allowing the story of Borough Hill to be told.

View of Borough HillArchaeologists carried out an aerial drone survey and surveys looking beneath the ground with electrical resistance and magnetic measurements over the course of two years.

MOLA and CLASP have used the results of these surveys to build a story-map that tells some of the history of the hill.

You can find the story-map here: Borough Hill : A Landscape Through Time

There’s a lot to scroll through from prehistoric times to it’s role in the Second World War and there is plenty to interact with. But, if you are interested in learning even more, CLASP is hosting a series of guided walks on Thursday 25th and Sunday 28th July at 12:30, 14:00 and 16:30.
