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
Online Archaeology Presentations
As we cannot get out and dig at the moment we have decided to bring some archaeology to you.
We will be giving a series of online presentations on some of our archaeological projects and other related
subjects over the coming months.
During the second of these presentations I will be telling you about:
Marlborough Castle, Wiltshire and Sherborne, Gloucestershire. During this talk I will be telling you about our search for the
remains of Marlborough Castle in the grounds of Marlborough College, Wiltshire Following a short history of the site of the Royal castle I will show the results of our geophysical surveys and
describe the archaeological excavations on the bailey wall of the castle. The second part of the talk will document our search for the lost medieval church in Sherborne, Gloucestershire.
Geophysical surveys and excavations over a number of years have tried to locate the lost church of St John. As you will hear, the investigation takes an interesting turn as we uncover remains
of significant Roman structures.
The presentation will start at 1930 on Wednesday 10th June 2020. Cost £6. (1.5
The presentation will be streamed live via the Zoom platform.
