Burrough Hill Finds

Date: Sat, 06 Jul 2019 - Sat, 31 Aug 2019

In 2010 the University of Leicester launched 'The Burrough Hill Project', with the support of English Heritage, The Ernest Cook Trust, and Leicestershire County Council. This five year programme of survey and excavation was to be an enormous undertaking.

The project's aim was to explore as wide a range of features, and as broad a geographical coverage as possible, and after selecting areas of the hillfort interior and exterior, the entrance, and the ramparts to sample, the excavations began.

This display is a unique and rare opportunity to see the finds from the excavations at Burrough Hill Iron Age hillfort.
