A Landscape revealed
The Down Farm Landscape (where Martinís family has farmed for generations) is one of the most carefully studied areas in Western Europe. Much of this work has been carried out by Martin himself - who in 1992 won the Pitt Rivers award for independent archaeology. He and his work (which has involved five universities and one of the major field units were recently featured in a BBC 2 'Meet the Ancestors' programme. The farm is part of Cranborne Chase, just south of Salisbury (where, coincidentally, the famous General Pitt Rivers began his pioneering work in the 1880s). It not only contains the Neolithic Dorset Cursus, numerous long barrows and Hambledon Hill, but over the last 30 years henges, shafts, plastered houses, land divisions, enclosures and cemeteries have been identified and excavated.
