2022 programme

What are we planning to get up to this year?

Please find our provisional events programme for this year below. We hope to hold as many in person events this year as possible, but may have to meet virtually at times. Full details will be sent out to members once confirmed – please drop us a message if you think you’ve missed an email.


January – Childhood

This year kicks off with a mini project exploring childhood in the past. During January, we’ll investigate what archaeological clues survive, play games from days gone by and read letters written by children almost 100 years ago.

February – Exploring childhood

What was it like to be a child in the past? We’ll choose topics to delve into and share our favourite bits of this hidden history.

March – Coins & dig prep

Coins are super exciting as well as useful finds. What can they tell us and how did they chance over time? Alongside all things coins related, we’ll get ready for our test pit excavation in April.

April – Big dig weekend!

Three archaeological ‘test pits’ (mini excavations). Two days. One medieval village. What will we find?!
