North Cornwall Heritage

Project Director:

Alexander Peter Vellet, Director of Archaeological Training

Project Description

North Cornwall Heritage is offering an opportunity to take part in our ongoing training excavations. We endeavour to provide a fun, relaxed and safe environment coupled with tuition from highly trained and experienced professional archaeologists, ensuring participants a high quality, industry standard education in archaeological practice. We believe in providing a flexible curriculum which is ultimately dictated by you, allowing for more tailored, personal tuition. We run multiple projects each season so that we may offer participants a choice of varied learning environments and experiences.

NCH01 is our principle site, primarily focused on a 13th-century deserted medieval village

NCH02 lies adjacent to a scheduled site of known Iron Age provenance

NCH03 is focused on three parallel ditches understood to be Roman in date. It is hoped these are part of a much larger, previously unknown Roman landscape

NCH04 is associated with a scheduled site believed to be Iron Age in date

NCH05 is a large pentagonal, double ditched enclosure of unknown date, although initial excavations indicate multiple phases of activity ending in the Roman period

These and other potential projects are subject to change and will be confirmed / announced closer to the start of the season.
