Archeoscan is offering the opportunity to excavate at various interesting archaeological sites throughout the year. We have recently surveyed a number of sites in Gloucestershire and South Gloucestershire. We currently have a number of sites for excavation generally from April to October each year.
Please see the Digging Dates page for those sites that are open for booking
Dig for a Day (or more)
We will normally be on site from Sunday to Thursday each week of the dig weather permitting (check individual site details)
DIGS FOR 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.
The dates that we will still have available on this site are:
Tuesday 19th September to Friday 22nd September
Sunday 24th September to Thursday 28th September
Monday 02nd October
Sunday 08th October to Thursday 12th October
