Community archaeology events in Chipping Warden

Community archaeology events in Chipping Warden

Following on from the successful TV programme Digging for Britain programme which featured Blackgrounds we have arranged local community events so you can come and talk to the archaeologists, see some of the artefacts (for the first time on public display) and discover what life was like in the area 2,000 years ago.

The events will take place at Chipping Warden Village Hall on the 18 and 19 February 2022. Tickets are free, but you must book a time slot to enter the museum. Each time slot lasts for 60 minutes and up to 30 visitors can book for each slot.

As well as the slots during these days we also have a presentation on the evening of 18 February 2022 by the lead archaeologist on the site, this will start at 6pm and if you are interested you will need again to book your slot.

I have added the links below for all of these events, please share with your communities, there will be an article in the Banbury Guardian next week but we wanted the local residents to be aware of this before wider circulation.

18 and 19 February 2022
