Secrets of the High Woods on tour – exhibition and activity days
Beneath the wooded countryside of West Sussex and Hampshire lies a forgotten landscape, littered with traces of past communities who lived and worked in the South Downs.
This summer we have shared the story of these people through a touring interactive exhibition and activity days. We are continuing through the winter to help you discover people who, like us, lived and worked in and around the South Downs.
View this landscape with new eyes. Sometimes a bump on the ground is just a bump, but sometimes it can tell a story…
Discover the secrets hidden beneath the local landscape with an introduction to archaeology,the chance to handle genuine artefacts and learn identification skills. Sessions suitable for adults and accompanied children 5+. No previous knowledge required.
Some venues hosting the tour will hold a children’s activity day. Suitable for ages 5-14 the drop in events will be free to attend but children must be accompanied by a parent/guardian.
