We’re dead excited here at DigVentures HQ, because if you enjoyed last week’s look back at 2015, we’ve got something even more exciting lined up for you today… a sneaky-peak preview at what’s coming up in 2016!
As always, we’re going to need teams of people helping us online, and people who are willing to get up to their bits in mud all in the name of fun… and archaeology!
Feel like you still need more holiday? Got a burning question you want to help our archaeologists answer? We’ve got PLENTY of past mysteries that we need you to help us solve. So get your diaries out and click here to let us know if you’re interested and we’ll make sure you’re the first to know when there’s more info to be had! Rest assured, this is just a taste of what’s coming – we’ve still got some more digs, masterclasses and special events to confirm yet… can’t wait!
Our first dig of the year is an absolute Spring treat! So bookmark the 15th-17th April if you want to spend a Dirty Weekend helping to expose an Iron Age settlement that’s set to change our understanding of life in northwest England forever.
We’re flying out to Spain and you can come too! Earmark early summer or late Autumn if you want to find out more about the deep, but littleknown Bronze Age links between Atlantic and Mediterranean cultures.
Like the Vikings? Into the Anglo-Saxons? Then get ready to help us locate the site of the first Viking raid on the British Isles! Keep the middle of June free if you’re interested in joining this team.
Lancashire – July
It’s going to be a race against time to save this Bronze Age barrow on coastal Lancashire. But it’s all hush hush for now – we won’t be releasing any more info until we get a bit closer to the time! Sorry, you’re just going to have to wait!!
