DigVentures at Leiston Abbey Welcome to the Site Hut (otherwise known as the DigVentures Blog!)

It’s not just for news or stories from our digs – our team of archaeologists dig up all the latest news from around the web, head Out and About as roving archaeo-reporters, and keep things fresh with regular features like Friday Five and How to Dig.

For real salacious gossip, sneak a peak at Raksha Dave’s Site Diary, or check in for a chinwag on Twitter or Facebook. Looking forward to hearing from you!
