4. Selection of Previous Society Events

2015

Stop Press!! 17 September 2015

AS most people know who are members of the society or read these jottings on this website, the society was involved with Prof. Steven Willis from the University of Kent on a dig in the Binbrook area. For an insight into what is happening please follow Steve’s blog on http://blogs.kent.ac.uk/digthewolds/. It is very informative and some good results have been found.

 Currant Events

During the summer there was ongoing local archaeology in which members of the society are involved with the University of Kent (under the direction of Prof. Steven Willis) in excavations within twenty miles of Grimsby. A possible Roman site has been identified from previous fieldwork. Its position will not be revealed for obvious reasons. Any important finds will be described in future editions of this website so Watch This Space!! 

The society will produce a report soon on this.

It is interesting to note that there have been excavations near the A180 roadworks near Killingholme and along the Humber Bank near Immingham recently (Reported by the Grimsby Telegraph) which have shown much Roman activity in those areas. It is obvious that North and North East Lincolnshire may have more of a Roman heritage than previously realised.

Recent Events

Finds sorting  (Swinhope fieldwalking)  and Caistor

There are a lot of of finds still to sort through and some really good stuff some of which has got us very excited.

The Society has plans in place for further local fieldwork or excavations on the Wolds in August and September so WATCH THIS SPACE.

If you wish to participate in some of these events which include geo-phys., fieldwalking, and excavation please contact our chairman in the Contacts section  of this website.

Looks like a busy summer.

Lincolnshire Graffiti Survey May 2015

Society members have a great interest in local history and David Robinson, our Chairman, has arranged  with Steven Birch, who has already carried a survey in Old Clee Church, to do our own survey.

With the kind permission of the Rev. Holden we have been given access to the church to examine graffiti and mason marks which have previously been recorded by Steven Birch.

Church graffiti – Holy Trinity Church, Old Clee.   Saturday  16th May, 2015.

With the kind permission of the Rev. Holden we have been given access to the church from 10.30 AM to examine graffiti and mason marks which have previously been recorded by Steven Birch.  Steven will be present with his records when we will survey the church to locate these marks and re-draw and photograph them as necessary.  It will also be an opportunity to look for other marks not yet identified.

Update

Some good and interesting examples were noted. Here is one example.  An effort to present more on this website will be made soon.
