Medieval Studies Forum and Villages Study Group Joint Meeting - Test pitting and Villages Studies


Dr Carenza Lewis, well known from television in programmes such as Time Team and more recently Michael Woods’ series on Kidworth, has agreed to give the keynote presentation at a joint meeting of the Medieval Studies Forum and the Villages Study Group on Saturday 12th March 2011.

Villages Study Group

The genesis of this Group was the Society's Millennium Project and has so far led to the publication of studies on Wimbledon (2000, by the Wimbledon Society), Shere (2001), Thorpe (2002) and Ewell (2004). Work is now well advanced on bringing the studies on Gomshall (including Peaslake and Ewhurst) and on Old Woking towards publication. New evidence has recently come to light regarding the development of Cranleigh and Cobham and work continues in many other villages.
