Archaeology Field Group Programme 2017
The programme of digs and surveys for 2017 is in the process of being finalised. Field Group members will be contacted about dates once a firm programme is in place.
Participants in all digs must be CVAHS members. If you are interested, but not yet a member, please contact CVAHS via this web site to confirm details of how to participate.
On our digs, we welcome people with experience and also novices - training in survey, excavation and recording techniques is given. For those who find digging difficult, there is work to do on post-excavation analysis and recording of finds.
