Summary

This amateur film records archaeological excavations on the site of the former Oatlands Palace in Surrey. The excavations, which were conducted by the Weybridge Museum, resulted in large trenches being dug on the site, exposing the remains of the palace. The remains of the palace can be seen as well as people digging, sorting finds and drawing diagrams.
