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
Starting in mid-September 2021 is an excavation on a new site in the Cotswolds near Guiting Power, Gloucestershire. We do not know what is causing all of the cropmarks and anomalies on the geophysics so we will be having an initial evaluation of the site to see what might be there. It has been speculated that this could be the site of the later Saxon Manor. The HER notes that a scatter of early medieval pottery on part of this field may suggest an outlying Saxo-Norman building. During work in the 1990s one evaluation trench was placed over what was interpreted to be a boundary ditch to the Saxon Burgh in the South of the field. its mid fill is of early Norman date.
More details and dates on the excavation opportunities page.
