Meet daily at 10 15 to start at 10 30 on site finishing at 3 /3-30pm daily.
Everyone welcome anytime, if you have half a day to spare that would be great, if you want to come all week, that is fine too or anything inbetween.  A day on a day off is sometimes a useful thing to do.
It is not all digging, we need people to measure, record finds, wash finds as well as to dig and scrape and empty buckets! From time to time we need photographers and people who are able to draw the trench… so as we said earlier, everyone is welcome.  And we need members to talk to the general public also.
As a member of the public we will give you an idea of what we are up to and you will be able to “have a go”.

If you are serious about being a team member we will ask that you join the group

Joining instructions and more info will be sent later on request.
