FOAM (Friends of Ancient Monuments)
On the Saturday 17 November 2012, a volunteer conservation day was held at Danebury Hill Fort. The HCC volunteers were joined by volunteers from FOAM (Friends of Ancient Monuments) and scouts from the Worting St Thomas group. The day was spent doing scrub clearance and other conservation work. The purpose of this was to return some of the overgrown areas of Danebury to it's original chalk grassland state.
FOAM is an informal group and is part of the Council for British Archaeology Wessex. The idea is that there are a lot of ancient monuments that need some care and attention and lots of people who want to get out and get involved in archaeology.
The next HCC/FOAM Conservation day will be on Saturday 19 January 2013. More volunteers are welcome. Please contact email@example.com for more information.
Free Discover Danebury Activity Day
The Discover Danebury Activity Day took place on Sunday 22 July. The weather was wonderful and over 600 people enjoyed Iron Age Re-enactments, Storytelling, Guided walks, Flintknapping demonstrations, Jewellery making and Facepainting.
There were also displays from the Countryside Service and the Museum of the Iron Age so that members of the public could learn about the important work that goes on at Danebury today as well as it's exciting history.
We have a regular volunteer programme which meets at Danebury and performs conservation and heritage tasks. If you are interested in joining in with this please download the attached form or contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
Discovery Danebury is being led by the Countryside service, who run and manage the site, working with the Museum of the Iron Age in Andover. The museum houses many of the archaeological finds from Danebury’s extensive excavations.
