March 2018

We asked our followers where we should dig

In March 2018, we did something that we don't think archaeologists have done before. We asked our followers where we should dig at Coldingham. The results are in! Check out the 'How We Decided Where To Dig' page in the background section to find out more.

September 2017

Coldingham's Dirty Weekend

In September 2017, the DigVentures crew headed up to Bonnie Scotland to prepare for the Coldingham Project with a test-pitting weekend. We dug six test pits to help us determine where our best chances of finding archaeology associated with Æbbe's monastery would be.
