Community archaeology - Geophsics at Willoughby Deserted Village near Norwell
Nottinghamshire Community Archaeology are running a geophysical survey training week at Willoughby Deserted Medieval Village (DMV) by Norwell, from the 27th of February to the 2nd March- there is a possibility of Saturday the 3rd of March, but that will be confirmed one way or the other shortly.
get in touch with them if you wish to attend any of the days mentioned. Places
are fairly limited due to the amount equipment- so booking is essential.
training is the first session in fieldwork being offered as part of the
Community Archaeology handbook, so people attending would be encouraged
to share their experiences with us in some way so that we can begin
work on that chapter.
The survey is being undertaken by Peter Masters of Cranfield University. As well as leading the survey he will be contributing the professional’s element of the chapter.
is a great opportunity to gain an insight into using the equipment, the
logistics of fieldwork and the standards and guidance of the
profession- as well as being immense fun!!!
The geophysics follows on from the topographic survey undertaken by the Community Archaeologists a few years ago:
In a history, archaeology or metal detecting society and want your events publicising on here? Are you an author who wants to publicise a new book or do you want to get an article out to the greater public?
So long as the event is in Nottinghamshire or South Yorkshire or the book article is about the area or people from this part of the world we'll gladly help. There's no charge as this service is set up to work for the community and to publicise as much of our great wealth of history as possible.
