Cresswell Pele Tower Community Archaeology Project Jan - Feb 2017   ()

Cresswell Parish Council has recently secured Heritage Lottery funding to restore and open Cresswell Pele Tower. A key part of the scheme is a Community Archaeology project which will include evaluation trenches, fieldwalking and related training, details of which are attached.

Following on from the success of the Rescued from the Sea project at Low Hauxley, we are very fortunate to have secured the services of Dr Clive Waddington and his team from Archaeological Research Services Ltd to run the Cresswell archaeology project and we are now looking for volunteers to help with all aspects of the project. Details of how to help with the excavations and/or fieldwalking or to book a place on the geophysics or fieldwalking training days are included in the archaeology programme available on the homepage of the Parish Council website at 

Document Archive/Miscellaneous/Archaeology Programme.

Further information is available from Barry Mead on 07986 018242 or email bas.mead@googlemail.com.

Spaces are limited on some of the activities and bookings will be on a first come, first served basis.
