Digging Opportunities

We will be providing a number of digs throughout 2021.

 

   Bookings for this dig now open

 

September 2021

 

We are planning to dig on a new site near Guiting Power, Gloucestershire in September.  This site is enigmatic.  It sits close to the Saxon area of the village and close to an early Saxo-Norman church. Aerial images indicate parch marks of possible large buildings and ditched enclosures.  This is in part supported by the geophysics. However, we will not know what is there until we dig. 

 

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.

 

It is planned to conduct an initial evaluation on the site from mid-September.  

 

The dates that we intend to be on site are:

 

Sunday 19th to Tuesday 21st September

Thursday 23rd and Friday 24th September

Sunday 26th to Tuesday 28th September

Thursday 30th September and Friday 01st October
