Members Digs

The 2017 Spring Dig will cover nine consecutive days, from Saturday 27th May to Sunday 4th June. The format will combine the usual digging activities with other work to progress the accession of previous finds.

This session is for WEAG members only, all of whom are invited. No prior experience is needed but PLEASE DO NOT JUST TURN UP - let us know the dates you expect to be available (email and we will send you an information sheet.

Please be flexible and cooperative about the things we ask you to do: what we ask will depend on what needs to be done, and you will have opportunities for both digging and recording, to suit your preferences. We do not charge a fee for this dig but all our materials, from wheelbarrows to finds bags, need regular renewal, so donations are always welcome.

Public Digs

The summer digs open to the public during July and August include three Archaeology / Geophysics Taster Weekends (for absolute beginners), and two Field Schools, each running for 5 days (Saturday to Wednesday), (for the more experienced diggers).

The menu on the left gives access to the reports on previous years excavations.
