2018 BIG DIG
This currently in planning but the dates have been finalized 28th, 29th and 30th July. It will be the last dig at Hollowforth (unless we are invited to check the other site of the mill race) and gives us a final chance to uncover dateable evidence. In this regard it has been a very frustrating site to uncover.
The site is towards the north of Woodplumpton - see the map,
The site manager will be on site from 10am every day but diggers can arrive at any time.
Toilet facilities will be available at the farm.
Equipment will be provided but stout boots/wellies are recommended. Insect repellent is advisable.
The site is approximately 500m from the farm across rough ground.
The first two days will, hopefully, enable us to complete the site - the third day devoted to tidying the site.
Britain's Ancient Capital, Dig for Britain and Time Team are TV programmes that have inspired many people to get involved in archaeology.
If you're one of those who have been inspired but don't know what to do about it and you're interested in the Archaeology, History and Pre-history of North West Lancashire why not join one of the very few practical field archaeology groups in the county?
Wyre Archaeology is keen to meet people who'd like to get involved in a practical way. Whatever your age, level of knowledge or skill, we can find a role for you.
