Oakham Castle Community Dig

Wednesday 18th April 2018 – Sunday 29th April 2018
Oakham Castle will be having a community archaeological dig for 10 days during April. Starting on Weds 18th April and running up to and including Sun 29th April, with a break on Monday 23rd and Tues 24th.
There will be an Open Day with extra activities and a chance for the public to see more of what has been found and hear about the process on Sunday 22nd April from 11am – 3pm.
Under the professional supervision of the University of Leicester Archaeology Service, up to 10 volunteers per day will have the opportunity to take part in a real archaeological excavation in the centre of Oakham.
Volunteers will be taking part in all aspects of the archaeological excavation. This will require strenuous physical activity equivalent to a full day of gardening, therefore a reasonable standard of mobility and fitness is necessary.
All training and equipment will be provided and no previous experience is necessary.
