04/09/2022 | Archaeology – Walking in ancient places Moderate walk

Walk overview

Join Dr Laura Basell and Dr Lee Bray to explore one of Dartmoor’s most ancient places. We will be running a guided walk at the prehistoric Tor Enclosure site of Dewerstone as part of the Dartmoor Tor Enclosures Survey Project (DATES) supported by University of Leicester students. DATES is led by Dr Laura Basell (University of Leicester) and Dr Lee Bray (Dartmoor National Park Authority) funded by University of Leicester, DNPA and the Society of Antiquaries. Since 2019 we have conducted geoarchaeological fieldwork with a team of specialists at Dewerstone and several other sites on Dartmoor, and we’re keen to share some of our results with you. The walk will be occurring towards the end of this year’s fieldwork season.

We’ll take a look at key landscape features, talk about the history of research at the sites, and give you a straightforward explanation of the fieldwork methods we used. We will be very happy to answer any questions you might have.

We will stick largely to the paths, but the terrain is rough and can be steep in places. Consequently this event is not suitable for young children, those with mobility or serious health issues.

Time: We will gather in the carpark at 11.00 am
Weather: At this time of year, we hope the weather will be fair. However we reserve the right to cancel the event in the event of illness, if conditions are not safe, or visibility is poor.
What to wear: Sturdy walking boots or wellingtons. It may be wet underfoot. Wear layers of clothes. It would also be sensible to bring waterproofs, sunblock and a hat. We recommend long trousers as there is a risk of ticks.
Facilities: There are no toilets available in the carpark or on site.
Food: Feel free to bring a drink and a packed lunch

The car park start is NOT the main Cadover Bridge car park on the Plympton side of the bridge, it is on the north side on the Yelverton side in the small car park above the cottage in the trees.
