We're back for our 12th season. Keep up to date with all the discoveries, brought to you by our daily bloggers.

It Begins!

Well, the trench is open and the new diggers are beginning their journeys to understand why we get so excited about changes in soil colour and texture...
This year's excavation is not only about trying to figure out the riddles of the past underneath the soil in Grovesnor Park, but also about getting the word out about archaeology in Chester.  You might just have heard of something called the Olympics (!) and on May 29th we are lucky enough to have the Olympic torch passing through Chester - and it will go right by the trench! So on May 29th in the afternoon we'll be having our Dig Open Day and we invite everyone to come down to have a closer look at the archaeology including opportunities to handle some of the finds from the park.  If you can't make it down on the 29th and find yourself in Grosvenor Park this May, you can still peek through the fence and ask questions of our diggers.  We're happy to talk about what we are doing and what we've found.  Let us know you've been following the blog and you might even get a mention in that day's post.
Here's hoping the day stays dry for the diggers.
