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

The 2013 season begins!

Well, the trench is open and the new diggers are eager to use their new trowels, learn about the practicalities of excavation and why we get so excited about changes in soil colour and texture...
This year's excavation is not only about our students trying to figure out the riddles of the past underneath the soil in Grosvenor Park though, it’s also about getting the word out about the archaeology of  Chester.  So in the afternoon of Tuesday May 28th 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 28th 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 first week stays dry for the diggers!
