Robin Hood’s Village Dig – Project update

The fieldwork for phase 1 of the Robin Hood’s Village Volunteer Dig has now been completed. The excavations ran from the 14th – 25th of July 2014, and was Mercian’s contribution to the   Festival of British Archaeology.

The project so far has been a fantastic success, recognised as Sherwood Forest’s biggest ever volunteer excavation with 117 different people digging over the course of 12 days, producing over 1,374.75 hours of FREE Community Archaeology.   See the project page here:    http://www.mercian-as.co.uk/robinhood.html
