Archeoscan Archeological Dig at Ashton Court
June 24 - July 19£30
Local Bristol residents have a rare opportunity to pick up their shovels and try their hand at archaeology on an iconic Bristol landmark – Ashton Court Estate. Members of the general public are invited to participate in the dig taking place over the summer, providing a rare chance to engage with and uncover elements of the property’s long and varied history.
On a series of heritage days between 24rd June and 19th July 2019, a community archaeological investigation will be conducted to investigate the results of a geophysical survey carried out in 2018.
The excavation is being conducted by Archeoscan (www.archeoscan.com) with the permission of Bristol City Council and supported by Artspace Lifespace and Historic England. All archaeology experiences must be pre-booked for a fee of £30pp per day. For more information or to participate in the excavation, please contact Archeoscan (firstname.lastname@example.org).
