Promoting awareness of the archaeology and history of North Devon

Longstone Landscape Community Archaeology Project
The Parracombe History and Archaeology Society (PHAS), some residents of Challacombe, North Devon Archaeological Society, the Exmoor Moorland Initiative and the Exmoor National Park have teamed up to undertake this ambitious new project.
With more than forty signed up volunteers there is great potential to research, record and more fully understand the moorland archaeology straddling the Parish boundary between the two villages.
Phase 1 of this project is now officially complete and a report is available at this link However Parracombe Archaeology and History group together with NDAS are keen to continue work on this important prehistoric and medieval landscape. There will be a geophysics survey of Radworthy in the spring and more barrow surveying when the moor has dried out somewhat. Information about the work can also be found in the NDAS Newsletters
