Maddy Andrews, New Forest History and Archaeology Group
The New Forest History and Archaeology Group, formerly the New Forest Section of the Hampshire Field Club, has been carrying our archaeological investigation in the New Forest since 1961, many well-known individuals who pioneered research into the New Forest have been members. The group’s work covers a broad spectrum of site types from all parts of the Forest, some examples from the very early days up until the present are discussed. Also mentioned is the group’s publishing side: producing books and reports both before and after a merger with New Forest Research and Publications Trust.
