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.

In August 2021 a community dig was undertaken in the fields surrounding the church following the results of our Geophysical Survey. Volunteers had the opportunity to excavate using shovels, spades and trowels and learn how to record findings accurately using drawing and photography techniques.

We will be welcoming Chris back in September for a talk discussing the finds made throughout the recent works.

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