WMI’s archaeology works – guided by experts

1 November 2021

Archaeological investigation is an important part of preparing to build the WMI project. We’ve recently appointed Wessex Archaeology – acknowledged as one of the best in their field – as our archaeological specialists. With decades of experience of working in sensitive landscapes, they have been investigating the site from the early stages of the project.

Before we start to build, our archaeologists will carefully and sensitively excavate and record what’s beneath the surface.

Anything that is uncovered will be properly investigated to the highest standards and treated with dignity, care and respect.

We’re also planning a community programme so that local people, visitors and enthusiasts will be able to learn more about their heritage and the archaeology of this area. We’ll be giving more information about the programme as it’s announced.
