As seen on the BBC 4 Digging for Britain Series. The Trellech excavation is a long term ongoing excavation, now more than 10 years old, to explore the scale and nature of the medieval settlement, once the largest in Wales.
The dig is open to everyone, of all ages, no experience is necessary.
We run experience days that start from £50 per person with discounts for groups that provide a detailed, concentrated and fun experience of being an archaeologist over one day. These are available on site throughout the year though it is best to book between April to October when the weather is normally better.
We also run a four week continuous summer dig each year from mid July to mid August. This allows students wishing to fulfil their course requirements for attending an archaeological dig and for others that wish to spend a longer time working on site.
Dates for 2016 are 16th July to 14th August. Cost is £50 for one week, then £4 per day thereafter and includes the cost of camping on site.
We also provide site tours over the summer months and lectures during the winter months.
Further details about the site can be found on our website www.lostcityoftrellech.co.uk.
