Fieldwork - Priory Park 2021

2021 excavation

The 2021 excavation took place between Tuesday 31st August and Tuesday 14th September 2021. A trench approximately 15m by 5m was excavated (shaded green on the map below) to expose an area between and including the southern wall of Building 2 and the northern walls of Building 3, immediately to the west of the area investigated in 2019. A detailed report will follow in due course.

Pending the full report a post-excavation 3D model has been completed and is displayed below with brief explanations of the key features. As with the other 3D models featured on our website the controls are as follows:

Press the 'play' symbol, then when the model has loaded 'left mouse click and hold' to rotate, 'right mouse click and hold' to pan sideways, use mouse scroll wheel (or hold Ctrl + mouse drag) to zoom. Click on any numbered annotations for more information on the features identified.

The Priory Park Archaeology Project is collaboration between Chichester District Council (CDC) and Chichester and District Archaeology Society (CDAS). James Kenny, Archaeological Officer for CDC directs the excavations; CDAS provides the volunteers and CDC provides the funding.
