Ambion Historical & Archaeological Research Group

Our surveys provide essential shallow depth finds data for archaeological site identification

AHARG was formally established in 2003 as the main research group to search for and survey the Battle of Bosworth site, although as a group of volunteers we had been working together since the autumn of 1996.

While working alongside the Battlefields Trust and other professional bodies, AHARG was successful in identifying the site of the Battle of Bosworth in 2009. Since then, AHARG have continued their research and have also worked on numerous other battlefield surveys as well as other important archaeological projects.
