Woking Palace Excavations : September 2012

Wednesday, 12 September, 2012 - 10:30 to Sunday, 30 September, 2012 - 18:00
With funding now secured, the fourth season of excavation at Woking Palace will take place during the second half of September, culminating in a public Open Day on Sunday 30th September.

This year, as well as seeking experienced volunteers, we are able to offer a small number of places to members of the Society with little or no excavation experience. We will not be offering a formal training programme to an accredited academic standard but rather the opportunity to learn the basics of excavation by working alongside experienced 'mentors' from the Society. The number of places will be limited and will be offered on a 'first come, first served' basis. The slots for those seeking to gain initial experience will be as follows:

Saturday 15th and Sunday 16th September

Wednesday 19th to Sunday 23rd September

Wednesday 27th to Saturday 29th September

As in previous years, experienced volunteers are sought not only to dig but also to help with preparing the site for the excavation (from Wednesday 12th September) through to the final clearing up of the site (on the 1st and 2nd October). Work will continue every day until the Open Day on Sunday 30th September, except on Mondays and Tuesdays which are days off.

Those interested in participating, whether as experienced excavators or as beginners are invited to contact Richard Savage for further details and to let him know the days they would be available. Once again, AARG will be providing on-site processing of the finds and members who would like to help with this should contact Isabel Ellis.
