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 hours)
 
The presentation will be streamed live via the Zoom platform. 
 
To book a place for the presentation please contact Archeoscan on archeoscan@hotmail.co.uk.  You will be sent instructions on how to pay and to receive your log on details for the presentation.
 
I hope that you will be able to join us for this presentation.

IMPORTANT INFORMATION REGARDING CORONAVIRUS

During these unprecedented times, the health and well-being of our customers, our team and our landowners are our top priority.
 
We are closely monitoring the Government guidelines and are following any instructions issued.  We have not had any cases among our staff at present and we are not aware of any cases among our customers.
 
The Government has advised that non-essential travel and social  contact is minimised. Therefore, with the health and safety of everyone involved in our projects in mind we have had to take some important decisions regarding digs currently planned for 2020.   Each of our digs is different in context with travel and meeting arrangements.  With that in mind we have made the following decisions.  All digs have been postponed.  We are monitoring the situation and will update our decision regarding any new dates for the digs as soon as we can. Those already booked on digs have already been contacted individually.
 
We will keep all our diggers informed about any future programmes as we move forward.
