The Archaeology Team at BGU is also focused on supporting local heritage and archaeology societies to carry out and publish their work. The publication of archaeological investigations is a key component of the archaeological process and something we readily support. One such project is helping the Sulgrave Castle Archaeological Group, an element of the Sulgrave History Society, publish the extensive excavations on their site, which started in 1960 and have continued until very recently.
The site itself is an important example of the changes that occurred in the Anglo-Norman period, with evidence of substantial and important Saxon buildings that were replaced by a Norman motte and bailey castle. It is intended that the main findings of the excavations will be published in The Archaeological Journal, and an open access report of all the works will also be made available.
