This summer, Archaeology Live! will be investigating the medieval church of St John in the Marsh, Hungate, York. The site could contain archaeology from the Romans through to the Victorians, but our main goal will be to see how much of the footprint of the medieval church survives.
During Archaeology Live! participants excavate and record the archaeology, while trainers teach and assist when required. It is a field-based training school where people learn by doing the excavation, and by discovering and recording the archaeology themselves, rather than by classroom-based tuition.
The training courses will take place over 12 weeks starting 24 June. Self-catered single-room accommodation will be available at an extra cost. Minimum age is 16. No experience is required to participate.
