Excavation: Tarradale Shell Middens

06 October 2017

The first excavations of the Tarradale Through Time project will start in September.

They are looking for 2 kinds of volunteers. First, experienced diggers who can work alongside and help less experienced diggers, including complete beginners, who will be given training. Secondly they are looking for experienced and inexperienced volunteers who may be less keen on digging but are very happy to assist with, and find out more about, finds processing and recording based at Tarradale Gatehouse. Again there will be training for everyone. The finds processors will be required in small numbers during the excavation but more especially from 30th September when the post-excavation work will begin.

If you are interested please let Anne Coombs know with the dates you would like to come to the digs by emailing annecoombs1@gmail.com. Please indicate if you are interested in the finds processing.
