We Dig Community celebrates Festival of Archaeology!

Friday 16 June, 2017, by Hannah Kingsbury

We Dig Community is celebrating the Festival of Archaeology 2017. The Festival of Archaeology is a fortnight of nationwide events celebrating local archaeology that is co-ordinated by the Council for British Archaeology. Find out more about the festival at http://www.archaeologyfestival.org.uk/about.
On the 23rd July, 10am till 4pm there are a variety of free activities taking place in Bainbridge. A guided walk of the archaeology of Bainbridge will leave at 10am, 12pm and 2pm, from the stocks on Bainbridge Green. This will include a rare opportunity to see the site of the Roman fort. Come along and see a test pit in action on Bainbridge green, and have a go at digging whilst you’re here. Find out how the We Dig project has progressed, including seeing finds from the excavations, and why not stop by and get a picture in our replica Roman helmet.
If you can’t wait till then, we are looking for volunteers. If you would like to get involved with ‘We Dig Community!’ and help out with this exciting archaeological project then get in touch! Contact Rebecca, on rebecca.cadbury-simmons@yorkshiredales.org.uk or 01969 652353.
