Trowels For All

Remember this? It’s one of the pictures of a new, as yet unidentified, possibly Tudor building in Greenwich Park that Rosie took a few months ago. At the time we speculated whether there would be any cash available for a small dig to investigate further.

Well, I’m delighted to say that yes – there will be an excavation, organised by Royal Parks and overseen by a consultant from Oxford, and they’re looking for volunteers to help dig.

It’s to begin on 6th September and if you’re interested, drop me an email and I’ll pass you onto the archaeologist in charge…

Exciting, eh?

    Oh, gutted…

    I am away until the 8th! Would have been fascinating to help out! Where abouts in Greenwich park is it? I would love to see how they are getting on.

    Two eager sets of hands available, but only from the 8th. Email on its way.

    There is a short piece about this in the Mercury paper.

    To take part call Michael Loughnane on

    They request that where possible you bring along your own trowel, small hand brush, hand shovel and bucket.
