Finding Flints

This is a little film about how to distinguish between natural flint and human made tools. If you have found anything that you may think is an artefact let us know. Perhaps we can help.

News & Pictures

WDDAG is looking to use this blog for people who have an interest in the archaeology of Dorset and generally. Please feel free to leave questions, comments, news and even pictures of artefacts that you have found.  

Meeting/radio interview

Our next general meeting is on the 26th January at 11am. Please leave a message and we will post details of location.

We had Wessex FM phoning us today and they are broadcasting an interview with Chris Tripp, our Technical & Media officer. Hopefully this will attract new members and promote the group to a wider audience.
