Archaeologists working on behalf of HS2 have made some amazing discoveries at the site of the ruined St Mary’s Church in Stoke Mandeville, which are changing our understanding of the local landscape and its history. Learn about how an archaeological excavation takes place, and how archaeologists have uncovered 2000 years of history at Stoke Mandeville, from an Iron Age and Romano-British settlement, to the decline of the church and churchyard in the late 19th-early 20th century.

Lily Hawker-Yates has a PhD in medieval history and archaeology from Canterbury Christ Church University. She works as a public engagement archaeologist for L-P : Archaeology, a commercial archaeology practice excavating at St Mary’s on behalf of HS2
