AROUND 100 people attended the first of the Branscombe Winter Project talks last Thursday night. Mike Parker Pearson, professor of Archaeology in Sheffield and director of the on-going Stonehenge and Durrington Walls excavation, told the audience about his team's discovery a few years ago of the large Neolithic village at Durrington Walls.
