Academic / Learning resources

Our academic and learning resources are extensive and growing by the day.

We are extremely proud of our academic partnerships with The Society for Post-Medieval Archaeology and our academic collaboration with Dr Matt Edgeworth PhD CMIFA FSA Honorary Research Fellow, University of Leicester, Dr Andy Moir of Tree Ring Services, Martin Wilson BA (Hons) MIEnvSc MCIfa FSA Sc, Souterrain Archaeological Services Ltd, Somerset Industrial Archaeology Society, Exmoor National Park Authority Conservation Staff and Dulverton Junior School, where Dulverton’s weir and leat feature as part of the school’s outdoor curriculum.

Academic papers by our partners and collaborators have featured in Archaeological Conferences in London, England and in Philadelphia U.S.A. The accessible nature of these historic assets (in most parts of the UK they have been built over or lost) continues to generate interest amongst academics.

We welcome contact from groups seeking knowledge of how these medieval systems worked and the socio-economic developments they created. We are able to help in arranging accommodation for groups of up to 30 people should it be required.

The work done with our partners and collaborators has expanded our knowledge and brought to life the history of the weir and leat and shown their key role in the heritage of Dulverton.

You can see a selection of some of what’s available on the ‘authored by us’, ‘authored by others’ and ‘press coverage’ pages of this web site. But as you can imagine, there is so much available that it would be impossible to put all our research on to our website.

We are happy to share our research and enthusiasm with you.

Our Archaeological Lead Trustee Peter Romain would be delighted to help you with your requirements – even if we do not have what you are looking for he will probably know who does have it !!

Please contact Peter on 01398 323070, or by post at Traders Cottage, 8 Weirhead, Dulverton, TA22 9DH or by email at peter.romain@dulvertonweir.org.uk.
