We edited this film of the Hayling Island Excavation Project’s 1977 and 1978 seasons. The original 16mm film was transferred to VHS and then to DVD. We took the DVD and extracted the files, made some basic edits and added the captions.
Personally I think it gives a lovely insight into the project and gives a great feel for how it was to be on the original excavation. It also raises some interesting issues about how we might think of using video as a recording technique on excavation projects today.
