was formed in 2004 by a small number of local residents having a keen
interest in the history and archaeology of Norton. The diverse interests of
its members spans research into the earliest evidence of Iron Age
settlements through the next 2000 years and into the 20th century
Iron Age Round House Circa 100BC
||Norton Hall Circa 1830AD
Some members of the Team carry out ground research recovering and recording
archaeological evidence of occupation through the ages, whilst other members
research numerous archival resources, all of which improves the knowledge of
our community’s heritage. Much of the information gained from this research
is available to view here whether it's Roman Coins or Records of Births,
Marriages & Deaths.
We are members of
(Community Landscape Archaeology
Project) and work closely with them in their research into the wider area.
We also work with the Portable
by submitting findings to the County’s Finds
Liaison Officer, who records all information on a National database.
We hold regular monthly meetings in Norton Village Hall generally 8.00pm on
the last Friday of the month. See
