In the middle ages pigeons and doves were a valued resource and dovecotes were commonplace, today they are still built as garden features. The Berkshire Archaeology Research Group ran a project, led by Dr Hutt to survey these structures within the boundaries of old Berkshire (pre-1974 boundaries). This talk presents the results of the survey and illustrates the survival of historic dovecotes from the middle ages to more recent times.


Dr Andrew Hutt is a member of the Institute of Field Archaeologists and a Geophysics specialist, who has published a book, Iron Age in Berkshire and has another to be published soon called The Romans in Berkshire. He is a leading light of the Berkshire Archaeological Society.
