About this event

The proposed construction of Hinkley Point C power station has resulted in extensive and detailed archaeological excavations in advance of the main development.

Archaeologists have revealed evidence of occupation dating back over 5,000 years. Bob Croft will give a short talk about the recent and current work and introduce a film that describes what has been found on the site so far.

There will be an opportunity for questions after the talk.
