NEHHAS Field Archaeology Branch will be digging at a site off the A31 at Four Marks, near Alton Hants. Participants will have the opportunity to experience the main tasks associated with an excavation under the supervision and guidance of a member of the society.
There is also a training exercise (5-day minimum) that participants can undertake at an additional cost. Those helping with the site set-up will receive a discount. Experienced and novice excavators from outside the society are welcome. All persons attending the excavation will be required to join the society for insurance cover, and novice excavators will need to purchase the NEHHAS training manual. Minimum age is 16, but younger children can participate if accompanied by a fee-paying adult.
Volunteers are asked to bring their own refreshments and lunch. Tents are available on-site for shelter and meals. Equipment will be provided, but participants are asked to bring their own trowel.
