CBA Members Tour 2017 – Jersey
Andante Travels is delighted to present our second tour in collaboration with the Council for British Archaeology. This tour explores the rich, multi-faceted archaeology of Jersey, an island with a unique history, that has left a unique monuments, site and landscapes to explore. Based in St Helier, the tour is led throughout by Robert Waterhouse, an archaeologist who has dedicated his career to the study of Jersey’s prehistory and led many excavations on the island. At the cutting edge of archaeological discovery, we visit some of Europe’s finest Neolithic dolmens, marvel at a great Iron Age coin hoard and explore the stalwart Norman and Tudor castles of later periods. We have special access and evening lectures at the headquarters of the Société Jersiaise, whose members have led the study and protection of Jersey’s heritage for over 130 years. A very privileged exploration of the history and prehistory of this beautiful island.
We are based throughout the tour at the highly-regarded Merton Hotel, on the outskirts of St Helier. A large hotel with many options to upgrade rooms, facilities also include pool, gardens, several restaurants and a fitness centre
