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
ARCHEOSCAN CONFERENCE 2020
Following the success of the conference that we held earlier this year, we have decided to hold another conference on Saturday 08th February 2020. Titled 'Recent Archaeological Discoveries in the South West' the day will include updates on the Archeoscan digs from 2019 (Ashton Court and Sherborne), talks on the Boxford mosaic (Anthony Beeson), Roman excavations around Bristol/Gloucestershire (Cotswold Archaeology), A Saxon Cemetery in Gloucestershire (dug by Op Nightingale) and LiDar in The Forest of Dean.
The full address of the venue is:
Slimbridge Village Hall, Slimbridge, Gloucestershire, GL2 7DF
The hall is directly opposite the village church and there is free car parking to the rear.
There are a couple of local pubs (within 5 minutes drive) that serve a variety of lunch options. You can also bring your own lunch and eat in the side room to the presentation hall and view finds from the digs.
The cost is £30 (to include tea/coffee on arrival and tea/coffee and biscuits during the morning break).
Bookings are now open for the conference. Pre-booking is essential. To reserve a place please email firstname.lastname@example.org
