We Dig the Castle!
Have you ever wondered what it is like to take part in a professional archaeological excavation? Do you want to learn more about the history of Nottingham beneath your feet? Following successful excavations in 2015 and 2016, Nottingham Castle will once again be the scene of a major archaeological dig during the summer of 2017. Trent & Peak Archaeology, working in partnership with Nottingham City Council and Historic England, will be on site to excavate an area in the Outer Bailey of Nottingham Castle. Run as a field-based training programme, the works will be excavated and recorded by trainees, taught and assisted, by Trent & Peak staff. There will also be a number of specialist visits and talks, introducing, amongst other topics, survey techniques and finds interpretation. The programme will coincide with the National Festival of Archaeology and will be run as part of ‘Archaeology Live!’, the flagship training excavations of York Archaeological Trust, of which Trent & Peak Archaeology is a subsidiary. More details will be added soon, so check back for further information.
