Monument condition assessment training course

Date: 
Thursday, November 29, 2018 - 10:00 to Friday, November 30, 2018 - 16:00

This new two-day course is led by Tom Dommett, regional archaeologist for the National Trust, who is responsible for ensuring that archaeological sites on National Trust land are monitored continually to help inform conservation work, identify problems early, and ensure sites are preserved for future generations to enjoy. Once trained, volunteers will hopefully continue to visit and monitor sites throughout the year, which range from Prehistoric hillforts to Second World War pillboxes and everything in between, taking photographs
and collecting data. Although training will take place on Hindhead Common, participants will be encouraged to apply their training to other sites in the county.

No prior training is necessary, but volunteers should be physically fit and able to walk to and around monuments, sometimes in remote locations. The ability to read a map will also be useful.

A full schedule for the two days and venue will follow shortly.

This course is part of the new HLF Sustainable Impact training programme, and will be provided at no charge. However, booking is essential and spaces are limited, so we do ask that participants commit to attending, once signed up. Please email outreach@surreyarchaeology.org.uk to book and for queries.
