Explore the 6,000 year history of one the country’s largest hill forts with local archaeologist and historian James Sainsbury.

For thousands of years. Cissbury Ring has been a landmark for local communities, providing a home to Neolithic flint mining, a formidable base for iron age settlers and perfect position for World War Two defences.

This two-and-a-half hour circular walk will explore the history of the site, how it fits in with wider landscape of the South Downs and the legacies left by the people who have lived and died here.

As the archaeological lead at Worthing Museum, James knows the site incredibly well and is sure to provide a fascinating and engaging tour for supporters of The Sussex Archaeological Society.

Spaces for this event are limited to 40 people on a first-come, first-served basis and tickets cost £5 per person.
