PHIL Harding, a familiar face on the Channel 4 Time Team, is currently working on archaeology at Winchester College.

He is helping at a development by Oxford-based construction company Kingerlee Limited, refurbish extend a listed building and build a biomass boiler plant.

The project includes the repair and conservation of the 17th century panelling that once lined the nearby 14th century chapel.

Once complete, the building will benefit from new auditorium seating, acoustic ceiling sails and renewable energy systems. It stands within the Warden’s Garden of the College, adjacent to the original 14th century buildings and water meadows.

The project is expected to finish in September 2014.

Mr Harding and a team of archaeologists from Wessex Archaeology have been plotting a wall that was uncovered whilst the Kingerlee team were opening a heating trench. They have advised that the wall dates back to early 1200.
