Summary

This short amateur film records some of the archaeological excavations led by Alec Down at a site near Up Marden in West Sussex. The film, although not particularly well-made, is of particular note because Alec Down, who led all of the excavations in the Chichester area between the 1960s and 1980s, usually refused to have films made of his 'digs'.
