Archeoscan run a number of digs open to members of the public throughout the year. This year we will once again be returning to at least two Roman sites. In April, our first dig will focus on the wider hinterland of the main building of a large Roman site that we have been excavating for the past 6 years to build up a sequence of dating for the whole site.
Our second Roman site, later in the year, will be looking for a well-appointed Roman building that accompanies 2 corn dryers we excavated in that area. There is a possibility that a lost Medieval church also lies in the boundary of the site. We will also be exploring the remains of a wing of a 16th Century manor house that was revealed in a geophysical survey during the dry summer of 2019 and we started to explore in 2020. We will also have another dig later in the year the details have yet to be confirmed.. Contact Archeoscan for more details and dates.
