TVAS News: North Bersted, Bognor Regis

Excavations, led by Andy Taylor and Andrew Weale, have been taking place in advance of a new housing development in North Bersted (near Bognor Regis) on behalf of Berkeley Homes (Southern) Limited and Persimmon Homes (South Coast) Limited. The archaeological work is taking place as a requirement of the planning process with the archaeological officer of West Sussex County Council advising the District Council as to what is required.

These excavations have revealed Bronze Age boundary ditches and occupation, a small hoard of four Middle Bronze Age bronze axes (palstaves), an Iron Age roundhouse and a Roman building, set amongst fields.
