We are running a geophysical survey training week at Willoughby Deserted Medieval Village (DMV) by Norwell, from the 27th of February to the 2nd March- there is a possibility of Saturday the 3rd of March, but that will be confirmed one way or the other shortly.

Please get in touch if you wish to attend any of the days mentioned. Places are fairly limited due to the amount equipment- so booking is essential.

The training is the first session in fieldwork being offered as part of the Community Archaeology handbook, so people attending would be encouraged to share their experiences with us in some way so that we can begin work on that chapter.

The survey is being undertaken by Peter Masters of Cranfield University, as part of Trent Vale. As well as leading the survey he will be contributing the professional’s element of the chapter.

This is a great opportunity to gain an insight into using the equipment, the logistics of fieldwork and the standards and guidance of the profession- as well as being immense fun!!!

The geophysics follows on from the topographic survey undertaken by the Community Archaeologists a few years ago which can be found here (see Willoughby Deserted Medieval Village).  It will hopefully provide us with some answers – and further questions regarding this fascinating site.

The site is located a few miles north of the village of Norwell on the side of the road to Carlton on Trent.

More information when you book a place.

Many other opportunities to get involved will also be coming soon with survey training, test-pitting, field walking and excavation all planned for the next few months.

Please let us know if you wish to attend the geophysics in February.
