Colemore Spring Dig (CM522) - 30 April to 22 May 2022

We have been exploring this fascinating site in a remote field in Hampshire for a decade now, usually in two sessions a year.  Using a combination of geophysics scans and excavation we have uncovered evidence of Iron Age and Romano-British structures and settlement, with some evidence of industrial activity too. The finds have included unusual glassware and pottery.

This year's Spring Dig will be from 30 Apr - 22 May, with set up on 28/29 Apr and take down on 23 May. Members will be able to have training and take part in geophys, excavation and finds processing. We also need some volunteers to help with the usual school visits which will be on 6, 13 and 20 May.

Bookings for this event are now closed. Days off will be Wednesdays during the dig. Dig fees are £6 per day.

Stroud Big Dig (STR722) - 2 to 31 July 2022

We were first invited in 2016 to undertake a village 'Big Dig' by the residents of Stroud, near Petersfield in Hampshire, who wanted to know more about the history of their Romano-British villa which was excavated in 1906-08 and about Romano-British items being found in their gardens. That year we dug 22 test pits in gardens in the village and undertook a big fieldwalking exercise, resulting in many finds.

We have returned every summer since then to undertake geophysics scans and more excavations.  Most interestingly these explorations have revealed two Romano-British structures on a farm. We have excavated much of the first, seen in this photo, but have yet to start work on the second. We have therefore arranged a 4-week dig on the dates shown above, with set up days on 30 June and 1 July and take down on 1 August. 

Booking is now open and can be accessed by clicking here.   Days off will be Wednesdays during the dig. Fees are £6 per day.
