In this talk the YDNPA Community Heritage Officer will briefly explore the history of Gamelands Stone Circle and give an overview of progress to date with the Gamelands WDLP project. This aims to undertake a small scale community archaeology project at the site, in order to better understand the monuments prehistoric past as well as its more recent history. A significant amount of the planned fieldwork has now been completed and it is hoped we will be able to finish it later during 2021.
