Future field work opportunities

HDAG has various activities planned in 2019 and volunteers are welcome —  just email and let us know which activities you are interested in.

Rackham woods
The RSPB has been clearing shrubby birch encroaching on Bronze Age barrows in Rackham Woods. The work is vigorous but a good way to work off Christmas excess in a beautiful setting!
Provisional dates are 18th January, 1st February and 15th February – but the work is weather dependant so dates will be confirmed a week before.

Henfield area excavation - dates to come

In the spring, we hope to investigate the course of a Roman road by digging a couple of trenches in a field near Henfield, West Sussex. We will also carry out geophys surveys. No experience required. This dig will offer a chance to learn the basics. Places may be limited so please register your interest.
