June 2021 UPDATE
Aylsham Roman Experience 2021 is confirmed! This year, though, will be very different.
There will be two weeks of digging, Monday – Friday, weeks beginning 9th and 16th August. These will only be for Friends who have renewed their card with us this year. We are restricted on numbers due to Coronavirus and the need to follow safety regulations, and guidance from our professional partners Britannia Archaeology.
However, during the third week, Monday – Friday week commencing 23rd August, we hope to fulfil our community aspect and offer times when, by booking, we can welcome people to view what we have found. This will be confirmed at a later date here, on our Facebook page and by email. We do hope you will be able to come along and see what we have discovered – this IS Woodgate, so we expect to find something!! Now all we need is good weather…
We keep our fingers crossed that this year we will be able to dig, but what format that will take will depend on the progress between now and August. We have provisionally booked Britannia Archaeology for three weeks, Monday – to – Friday, starting Monday 2nd August 2021. The format, though, we feel, will probably be very different to previous years, but we keep hopeful that, in some way, we will be able to do some excavation. Fingers crossed for a successful vaccination roll-out that will allow us once again to meet and get into holes!
At some time, though, we WILL meet and dig again, those wonderful pieces of Bronze Age pottery are still waiting to be found and the large Roman building remains are still lurking a few feet down.
Stay safe everyone.
