Community Archaeology

In February 2020 Chris Butler gave an introductory talk which explored the archaeological and historical background of Berwick, and explained the archaeological research project planned at the Church and within the local community.

The project will see a Geophysics Survey of the field behind the church and a weekend of excavations undertaken in the gardens of local residents. You will have the opportunity to learn how to use the geophysics equipment, to interpret the results of the survey and to develop excavation skills.

The date of the Geophysics Survey and Community Excavations will be announced as restrictions lift and activity can be conducted safely.

If you are interested in either activity, please email Helen Ellis on to be kept informed of developments.
