In September 2015 the Friends of Woking Palace and archaeologists from the Surrey County Archaeological Unit will be returning to Woking Palace for the final season of excavations as part of the Woking Palace and its Park Project, a 3-year Heritage Lottery Funded community-based project aiming to cast light on the development of Woking Palace and its surrounding 590 acre deer Park, from its earliest days right through to modern times, including its glorious Tudor heyday.
This year’s excavations will run from Wednesday 9th September until Friday 25th September, excluding Mondays and Tuesdays. A special open day will be held on Sunday 27th September from 11am when guided tours of the excavations will run until 4pm (see www.woking-palace.org for further details).
There are spaces available for both experienced and inexperienced volunteers working with our finds team or excavating.
