The project has been successful in finding strong evidence of a continuing Iron Age settlement on Barby Hill. Three reports have been written and will be deposited with the National Archaeological Archive and accessible by anyone who wants to do further work in the future. A case study has been printed and is available at the top of this page. The Barby Hill Archaeological Project Interim Report for Third Year 2013/2014 is available here.
The Management Committee of the Barby Archaeological Project has now wound up the project. This was prompted by the recent death of Gren Hatton, who had been the driving force behind the project, but also by agreement that there would be reducing returns from doing further work.
BHAP was financed by generous donations from many sponsors - Barby Parish Council, Barby Townlands Charity, Northants CC, Daventry DC, the Robert Kiln Foundation and significant personal donations. We are very grateful for their support and for the strong leadership shown by Gren Hatton during the project.
Rob Close, BHAP Treasurer
