DigVentures is crowdfunding a dig to investigate a medieval monument, in the middle of a moat!
At Soulton, DigVentures is trying to discover the origins of a scheduled ancient monument whose story had long since been lost to time. The water-logged conditions of the moat have preserved many artefacts that rarely survive, including a medieval leather shoe, acorns, and even the remains of a medieval wooden moat-bridge.
Excavation has also revealed other clues, like pilgrims’ trinkets, tokens, jewellery, cups, jugs, and bowls, while geophysics has shown that there are other archaeological remains waiting to be discovered just below the surface.
Help DigVentures to reach their goal and make the dig happen, and have the amazing opportunity to take part in the dig itself – online, or in Shropshire.
The main excavation is suitable for ages 17yrs and upwards, with specific sessions suitable for children. DigCamp (ages 6-12) and DigClub (ages 12-16).
The cost of the excavation depends on the session, with prices ranging from £290 – £1,375.
