Digging Opportunities

We will be providing a number of digs throughout 2019.

 

 

Dig at Doynton 23 April to 23 May 2019
 
We are returning to Doynton Roman site for the opening dig.  For the past 6 years we have been exploring the main 3rd/4th century building on the site.  This year we are starting to have a look at the wider environment and context of that building.  We will look for earlier phases of occupation and try to explain the sequencing of the enclosure ditches that are obvious on the geophysics.  We will also be exploring whether other buildings/roads are present on the wider site.
 
The dates that we are planning to be on site are:
 
Tuesday 23rd to Friday 26th April
Sunday 28th April to Thursday 02 May
Sunday 05th May
Tuesday 07th to Thursday 09th May
Sunday 12th to Thursday 16th May
Sunday 19th to Thursday 23rd May

Excavation at Ashton Court, Bristol - 23 June to 18 July 2019
 
Ashton Court has been the site of a manor house since the 11th century, and has been developed by a series of owners since then. From the 16th to 20th centuries it was owned by the Smyth family with each generation changing the house. Designs by Humphry Repton were used for the landscaping in the early 19th century.
 
During the hot dry summer of 2018 parch marks appeared on the front lawn of the Mansion.  Archeoscan conducted a geophysical survey and revealed what might be the outline of a lost wing of the mansion as depicted in a painting dated 1791.
 
With the kind permission of Bristol City Council Archeoscan will be excavating the possible remains of the building and also examine what might be the old approach road and formal gardens for the original manor before the frontage was extended.
 
The remaining dates that are available for booking on this site are:
 
Sunday 23rd June to Thursday 27th June
Wednesday 03rd July
Thursday 04th July
Wednesday 10th July
Friday 12th July
Sunday 14th July
Monday 15th July
Tuesday 16th July

This dig starts at 1000am to allow travel across Bristol in the start of the day.

DIg at Sherborne, Gloucestershire 05th to 22nd August 2019
 
A dig at a Roman site in Sherborne, Gloucestershire in August.  In 2013 we visited this site in search of a lost medieval church.  We did not find the church but found a Roman corn dryer instead.  We also found other evidence of a Roman building close by including painted wall plaster and other Roman artefacts.  We are returning to look for the Roman building.  Who knows we may still yet find the lost medieval church!!
