Excavation of a Roman site at Nassington

Saturday, to Saturday,


The Group will continue last year's excavation of what turned out to be part of a Roman farmstead (a barn?) near Nassington. The barn had at least two phases, one being burnt down and replaced by another on a slightly different alignment. Nearby structures included an oven and corn-drier (not fully excavated).

This year we primarily want to continue excavating further into the middle of the structure to find out more about its phases. The dates given are those that are planned, but may change dependent on a crop being harvested.

If you wish to volunteer as a digger, please read the FAQ, and complete an application form and send it by post to the address given on the form. Volunteers will need to be a member of MidNAG to dig.
