Spring Survey Week One – Day One

This week 25 students and 8 staff are working at Basing House to carry out a topographic survey of the entire earthworks complex, and a building survey of the Old House and the Great Barn.

Undergraduate and postgraduate Archaeology students have been hard at work, learning how to use total stations for surveying.

We’re on site all week (the rain will not put us off), so do come and visit. The site is open to the public Saturday to Thursday (closed Friday). The students will be very busy, but I am sure that they would be delighted to stop for a chat and to show you what they’ve been up to.

Here some photos of our efforts today.
