Project Description:

We Dig is York Archaeology’s training excavation. Formerly also known as Archaeology Live!, the project has run from 2001 offering members of the public a unique opportunity to gain hands-on experience of the internationally significant archaeology of York and Nottingham, investigating sites that feature deeply stratified, highly complex archaeological deposits.

We are going to be digging to the south east of where we were digging last year – we found some interesting artefacts last year, as well as geodes, coral and shells, so we are hoping to uncover more information about where they came from and when
