This presidential address revisits the author’s archaeological excavation of a Neolithic long cairn at the Cotswold village of Hazleton in 1979–1982. After a summary of the findings of the excavation a personal account is given of the reasons for the project, how it developed and was achieved, its post-excavation aftermath, and its continuing legacy. Although making no claim to social history, the address considers some aspects of the Hazleton project in the archaeological context of its time – a time which is already beginning to seem remote.
