Description

The sites around Avebury were surveyed by RCHME Salisbury in 1991, after the designation of the area as a World Heritage Site. The manor house and grounds of Avebury Manor were bought by the National Trust in 1991 and the survey was part of a programme of archaeological investigation in advance of demolition work, and to aid management of the area. In 1995, aerial photography revealed parchmarks of a double ring-ditch in the north-west quadrant of the circle, and another survey was undertaken to include these. It was published in Antiquity in September 1996.
