Hands on archaeology activities with the Dean Archaeological Group and Dean Heritage Centre Team. Join in with a real excavation in the Paddock.  There will also be a Resistivity meter to demonstrate Geophysics (how we can “see” archaeological features like walls and ditches under the ground). Also an archaeological sandpit for younger budding archaeologists, and a chance to try metal-detecting.

If you have any finds from your garden, or elsewhere, then bring them along, and we'll do our best to identify them!
