We're working on arranging a number of upcoming activities, including
graveyard survey days, riverbank audits, and oodles of excavation. We're not
ready to confirm dates yet, but we should be returning to Kirkby Hardwick tudor
remains for a second phase of excavation in March, so watch this space! We will
also be returning to Mons Pool excavation near Collingham in August. Visit the 'See what we do' section of the website if you want to see pictures from previous
One of the big projects for this year is to produce a handbook on
archaeology for community groups, which will be written by professionals and
amateurs working together. We had a couple of introductory workshops that
people came along to and helped form ideas. I want to say a massive 'thankyou'
to all who attended; it was really useful for us and we think we have a better
idea of how the handbook needs to develop.
Don't worry if you weren't able to make it as there will be
plenty of opportunities for people to get involved in writing pieces for

This event will be returning to Newark Castle for the 3rd year. It will
take place on Saturday 28th July, and will hopefully be bigger and better than
ever. We will be looking for volunteer stewards once again, but we will email
about that closer to the time. Time Travel Trent Vale also has a facebook page,
so you can follow developments there.
We hope to see you soon!
