Join the Petersfield Big Dig, a two-week Test Pit Excavation in the medieval town of Petersfield. Marking the 50th Anniversary of the Petersfield Historical and Archaeological Society, and participating in the Festival of Archaeology, the 1st year of this exciting new project seeks to investigate a number of private gardens and public green spaces.
Within the town and its’ surrounds, there is a range of archaeology from all periods. A series of geophysical surveys have taken place as well as desktop background research including Lidar and old aerial photographs. Activities include excavation, finds processing, sieving, recording, planning and drawing, plus surveying to professional standards.
Participants must be 18yrs and upwards to attend the dig. The cost of the excavation is £8 per day, with £20 per year membership. Full-time students under 25yrs are half price.
Accommodation is not provided but is available nearby, alongside camping facilities.
