Archeoscan provides opportunities for public involvement in archaeology. Our most popular activity is giving people the chance to participate in an excavation at exciting sites in the Cotswolds area. We also assist communities in conducting geophysical surveys of sites of interest to them. Equally, we visit schools and colleges in support of the national curriculum to provide hands-on experiences of archaeology
In 2021 many people enjoyed excavating on a Roman villa site and discovering a lost Medieval manor in the Cotswolds. Thank you to all who participated in the digs and contributed in so many ways. We have already conducted 2 successful digs in 2022 and have more to come this summer
Guiting Power, Gloucestershire (June/July 2022)
Our next dig is at Guiting Power, Gloucestershire (near Bourton-on-the-Water) on selected dates between June 26th to 21st July 2022. We conducted an initial evaluation on this site in 2021 and uncovered the remains of a Medieval manor and its associated outbuilding complex and we are returning to this site this year to conduct a larger scale excavation on the footprint of the main manor house building.
Slimbridge, Gloucestershire (August/September 2022)
We are pleased and excited to announce that bookings are now being taken for our excavation at Slimbridge, Gloucestershire on selected dates between 16th August to 08th September 2022. You may recall that we conducted an initial evaluation on this site in 2020 and then a more extensive excavation on 2021. We uncovered evidence for a large Roman stone building with further evidence of underfloor heating and a possible bath suite. This was all superimposed on a background of an Iron Age settlement. This year we intend to carry on from where we left off last year and continue to explore the Roman
buildings on the site.
