South Somerset Archaeological Research Group
The South Somerset Archaeological Research Group (SSARG) is an umbrella organisation that undertakes archaeological projects in southern Somerset. Some are run entirely in-house while others are collaborative projects with other local archaeological and historical organisations.
We recently carried out a geophysical survey of Lufton Roman villa with the Yeovil Archaeological and Local History Society and are currently carrying out a project at Lytes Cary with the National Trust Volunteers. Under the SSARG umbrella, the long-running and successful South Cadbury Environs Project will continue its archaeological investigation of the zone around South Cadbury Hillfort.
SSARG aims to give a wide range of opportunities to volunteer members in the South Somerset region and beyond (we have members as far afield as Australia). We accept volunteers of all levels of experience, including complete beginners. We provide training as required and encourage volunteers to expand their capabilities. We also provide a programme of workshop sessions, talks, visits and social events.
The South Somerset Archaeological Research Group has been formed as a result of the merger of the South Cadbury Environs Project (SCEP) and the South East Somerset Archaeology Society (SESAS). The new organisation reflects our expanded role in Somerset archaeology.
Sorry, contact and website aspects are under construction. We will add these shortly.
