Report 2nd February 2010

David Hunt gave us an eye-opening presentation on The Archaeology of Thruscross.  Using copies of ancient maps and documents written in Norman-English he described the history of Thruscross and the surrounding area. Particularly interesting were details of the submerged village, West End, and the many surviving farm buildings, some dating back as far as 1374 as well as the ancient stone-circles.
 
In response to questioning Mr Hunt then gave instructions on the ancient art of dowsing which can be very useful in archaeological digs.
 
We were glad to welcome Mr.Derek Simpson as a guest.
             George Mountford.
