Community Dig

Join us on Saturday 14th and Sunday 15th August 2021 9:30-4:30 for an exciting community dig where we will be opening up a series of trenches and test pits in the field in front of Berwick Church, following the results of our Geophysical Survey. 

Volunteers will have the opportunity to excavate using shovels, spades and trowels, as well as help record what is found using paperwork, photography and drawing techniques. Volunteers will also have the opportunity to undertake on-site washing of any finds.  

You can opt to take part in the morning (9.30 – 12.45) or afternoon (1.15 to 4.30) but preferably you will be available all day to help.

If you would like to get involved, please email Helen at

We are hoping there may also be an opportunity to undertake small scale test pits in gardens within Berwick, so if you are interested, please do let Helen know.
