Archaeology Volunteer Event and Taster Session

4 August 2018 @ 12.00pm - 4.00pm

Free but booking essential through Ticketsource

Grosvenor Park Chester

Are you interested in the archaeology of Chester? Would you like some hands-on archaeology experience but don’t have time to volunteer during the week?

On Saturday 4 August the Grosvenor Museum will be running a finds washing session in the Grosvenor Park Activity Zone, would you like to join in and help?

The finds we will be washing will be largely Roman and later roof tiles, floor tiles and bricks and animal bone (this will tell us what people were eating). The finds come from a site in Chester where excavations  uncovered the remains of Roman buildings, a  medieval nunnery and a 16th/17th century house.

No experience necessary, there will be trained archaeologists to tell you what to do. Please bring rubber gloves and an apron, or wear clothes that you don’t mind getting dirty. You must be over 16 to take part.

Activity Zone, Grosvenor Park, Grosvenor Park Road, Chester, CH1 1QQ
