    We Dig The Castle: Unearthing Nottingham’s Archaeological Secrets Part Two

    This blog is the second instalment of a two part blog. To read part one click here.

    Back in July I visited Nottingham Castle to find out more about the annual archaeological excavation ‘We Dig The Castle’.

    A partnership project between Trent & Peak Archaeology, Nottingham City Council and Historic England, this excellent scheme invites volunteers of all ages and backgrounds to get involved, discover more about the Castle’s history and the process of archaeology itself. Trainees take part in excavation, cleaning and recording in the trench, sieving, finds washing and processing, work on environmental samples, surveying, walking tours, workshops and tutorials.
