During the Medieval and Post-Medieval period Black Down was a marginal landscape, on the edge of counties and parishes, where people eked out a living on the Common. But evidence from archaeological field survey and excavation on this dramatic sandstone outcrop is increasingly suggesting that Black Down was a central place of real importance during the Prehistoric period where, over thousands of years, people lived and hunted, buried their dead and worshipped their ancestors.

Tom Dommett is the National Trust’s Regional Archaeologist for West Sussex and South Downs, and has been leading the archaeological investigations of Black Down over the last two years.
