The recent excavations

Recent excavations at Star Carr. Watch Professor Nicky Milner explain what the key discoveries were.

In this film, Nicky talks about some of the most important discoveries we have made during our recent excavations at Star Carr, from 2004-2015. Excavation of this more recent phase is now completed, but there may be the opportunity for future generations of archaeologists to return to the site and learn more.

Further resources

You can read more about the excavations and how these progressed from 2004-2015 in Chapter 3 of our book and if you really want to find out the details, all our excavation reports, data, photos and films are accessible on the Archaeology Data Service website.
