Old Clee Garden Dig House Survey

The society is keen to do a series of local digs in the gardens of private property in the Old Clee area of N E Lincs.  Members of the society will be canvassing householders for their support in this project and it is hoped that enough interest will be generated which will allow the society and the local community to have a better picture of past life in that corner of the local area. Society members will be around between 11am – 2pm with letters explaining what the society proposes to do. It is hoped that a lot of interest will be generated and support given.

Update. This was a success and, with the help of the \university of Cambridge, the society hopes to be working on this project in May and showing a group of students from a local secondary school the importance of local archaeology.

Another such dig is being planned for Healing soon so watch this space!

Field work 2016

It has been confirmed that the society will be commencing digging at Swinhope from Tuesday 20.09.2016 for approximately two weeks.  We will meet on site on Tuesday, 12.09.2016 at 10am..  If you are interested in joining us on the dig please let David have your availability dates to give us some idea of staffing levels and up dated contact details such as mobiles etc. on 01472  236827  or
