Hello, and welcome to ACE

ACE Archaeology

We are on our way back!  Our website was hacked, many times, but we are on our way back to full service being resumed although not quite there yet so please bear with us.  We cannot be contacted through the website yet so please use Facebook messages.

ACE Archaeology Club is based in Mid Devon but we work in other areas of Devon.  We are dedicated to investigating and protecting Devon’s Archaeological Heritage.

The club is an active local group of people of all ages devoted to the promotion, use and investigation of all the many aspects  of archaeology, from surveying, experimental archaeology, field walking, participation in excavations and archive research, from palaeolithic to more recent times. The Club provides opportunities to meet others interested in archaeology, to visit sites of interest and to take part in practical and experimental archaeology.

The Club also provides tuition in archaeological techniques such as surveying and recording, as well as the opportunity to take part in excavations.

This report takes us through ACE from its very beginnings right up until 2007.

ACE provided much of the organisation and people for the Archaeology and Bracken Project under the direction of Dr. Sandy Gerrard. The project started in 1997 with volunteers and was been adopted by ACE since 2003. The importance of the round house chosen for the Project has led to further surveys and projects on Dartmoor.

Our main project now is the Moistown Archaeological Project.
