This summer marks the 20th season of Enfield Archaeological Society’s excavations at Henry VIII’s royal palace of Elsyng in the parkland surrounding the early 17th-century Forty Hall, Enfield. This year’s exploration of this scheduled ancient monument will focus on the inner gatehouse, which would have been one of the largest buildings in the complex. It is believed to have medieval origins and would have formed the entrance to the inner court which held the royal apartments.
Volunteers aged over 16 are welcome for all or just part of the excavation with no requirement for previous experience.
The excavation is free but £12 membership of Enfield Archaeological Society is required by the 25 of June 2023 in order to participate in the excavation.
