Exploring and Celebrating the 
History on our Doorstep

The Norfolk Archaeological Trust has received a grant of £74,700 from the Heritage Lottery Fund (HLF) for an exciting project based at two Trust sites: Tasburgh Camp and Burnham Norton Friary.

Thanks to National Lottery players the ‘Imagined Land’ 2-year project will offer local people the chance to explore and celebrate the heritage of the sites at the heart of their communities, through practical research and creative activities.

Tasburgh Earthworks

The project will include a programme of archaeological ‘test-pits’ in gardens and fields outside the scheduled monument areas to find out more about the development of these enigmatic sites. 

Burnham Norton Friary

Archaeological research will then be used as the starting point for creative arts work – writing, music and craft making – culminating in historical pageants devised and created with local communities, including schools.

Over the next two years we will use this site to report on and record all the activities taking place as part of the project. The site will remain the permanent home for signposting research produced as part of the project.
