This walk takes you to various archaeological, historical and other sites of interest on Southampton common. Learn about the Common's role in D-Day preparations, find the old city boundary and see a possible Iron Age meeting point.

Starting at the University of Southampton's Avenue campus (SO17 1BF) it covers around 6km on level ground of grass and paths.

Download the map and information sheet to get going, and there are some questions to answer on the way.
