  • Description

Enjoy a walk in the countryside with our resident archaeologist talking through points of interest.

This year sees the return of the Archaeology Walks Programme with nine walks taking place between May and September. Three walks take place on Saturday mornings, three on Tuesday mornings and three on Thursday evenings. New walks include Bignor Hill and Amberley Wildbrooks, along with some old favourites like Cissbury Ring, Highdown and Chanctonbury Ring.

As always James will be bringing along genuine artefacts from the museum collections to give attendees the opportunity to handle items in the locations they were originally found.

From James
“We are all extremely lucky to live in an area that not only has outstanding natural beauty, but also outstanding archaeological remains. I hope during these walks I can communicate and share my passion for these ancient places and the peoples who once lived, walked, loved and died within the landscapes we inherited today”

Cissbury Ring – “Flint Mines & Ramparts”
Explore the 6000 year history of Worthing’s highest hill, and the country’s second largest hill fort. From Neolithic flint mining to Iron Age ramparts and WWII defences, Cissbury one of the real jewels in Worthing’s crown.

This walk involves minimal climbing (at the end) but is still at moderate difficulty due to the terrain and length of the walk.

3 miles – moderate difficulty

Please Note
The walks are graded by difficulty – some involve more climbing than others! It is advisable to bring water to all of the walks, and a bite to eat on Saturday sessions. Dogs are welcome on a lead.
