Community Archaeology Days

Community Archaeology Days at King John’s Palace

We are extremely proud to announce that Mercian Archaeology are running a FREE Community Archaeology excavation in July as part of the ‘Discover King John’s Palace’ project sponsored by the Big Lottery, and the Magna Carta 800th fund. The project is also timed to run alongside the Festival of British Archaeology.

The excavation will run in July 2015, from Tuesday 7th- Saturday 11th, and Tuesday 14th- Saturday 18th.

There will also be public open days on Saturday 11th and 18th at the site alongside the excavation (more information to follow).

At this stage we are going to limit people to one day per week, but this may change nearer the time.

The project is being run in conjunction with The Sherwood Forest Trust, Mickie Bradley, and Robin Hood aka Ezekial Bone, and is going ahead thanks to winning the public Peoples Millions Phone Vote on ITV last year- thank you again to everyone who voted!

The excavation is just a small part of what is taking place throughout the project- which is designed to engage local people and school children, as well as increase understanding of the site, as part of celebrations around the 800th anniversary of the signing of the signing of the Magna Carta in 1215.

Please contact Mercian Archaeology by email to secure your place…
