Wisley: Excavation in 1978


This is a summary report on the excavations carried out between 21 August and 3 October 1978 in a large arable field (TQ 069 598) to the north of Wisley Village and bordered to the north and west by the River Wey. A full report is to be found in Microfiche [now online on this website]. A number of finds from the prehistoric and Roman periods had been made in the immediate area while earlier trial excavation by Ann Watson in 1977 had revealed evidence of medieval occupation. A larger part of this medieval settlement site was uncovered in the 1978 excavation and it is suggested that it was associated with the mill thought to have existed in the vicinity on the basis of documentary evidence. It is further argued that the river was diverted to facilitate the operation of the mill.
