Kirkby Hardwick digging 5


We're working on arranging a number of upcoming activities, including graveyard survey days, riverbank audits, and oodles of excavation.  We're not ready to confirm dates yet, but we should be returning to Kirkby Hardwick tudor remains for a second phase of excavation in March, so watch this space!  We will also be returning to Mons Pool excavation near Collingham in August.  Visit the 'See what we do' section of the website if you want to see pictures from previous excavations.


Archaeology Handbook

One of the big projects for this year is to produce a handbook on archaeology for community groups, which will be written by professionals and amateurs working together.  We had a couple of introductory workshops that people came along to and helped form ideas.  I want to say a massive 'thankyou' to all who attended; it was really useful for us and we think we have a better idea of how the handbook needs to develop. 


Don't worry if you weren't able to make it as there will be plenty of opportunities for people to get involved in writing pieces for it.


Time Travel Trent Vale

This event will be returning to Newark Castle for the 3rd year.  It will take place on Saturday 28th July, and will hopefully be bigger and better than ever.  We will be looking for volunteer stewards once again, but we will email about that closer to the time.  Time Travel Trent Vale also has a facebook page, so you can follow developments there.


We hope to see you soon!
