Event - Graveyard Surveys at Laneham

Notts CC Community Archaeologists are looking for volunteers to help with the  graveyard surveying days at St Peter’s church, Laneham.

Dates: Saturday 9 , Monday 11 and  Tuesday 12 July
Time: 10am to 3pm
Location: St Peter’s Church, Laneham

We are looking for more people to come along and take part in these surveys, and all training will be provided.

We will be recording information from headstones, as well as their condition. Headstones suffer badly through weathering, and over time the information inscribed on them can be lost. So surveys like this are very important for providing genealogical information, as well as providing a benchmark by which the rate of erosion of stones can be measured.

If you are interested in coming along or finding out more please contact Emily Gillott, Community Archaeologist,  Tel: 0115 977 2160.
