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 2022 many people enjoyed excavating on two Roman sites, a possible new pottery kiln site and a possible port on the River Severn, 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 enjoyed a number of succesful digs in 2023
FINAL DIG OF THE 2023 SEASON
Slimbridge, Gloucestershire (19 Sep to 12 Oct)
We are returning to the Roman site at Slimbridge that we left open from earlier in the year. Those that were with us then will remember that we had just started to uncover what we believe is the main villa building that accompanies the large aisled barn that we have located within the Roman compound. During this session we will be focussing on the main villa buildings.
