We are recruiting volunteers for this year’s dig,  which will take place from July 3-16.  Volunteers need to be aged 18+ and  those  with some previous fieldwork experience are preferred. There will be no charge. Some training will be given. However, accommodation will not be provided, but there is self-catering accommodation available locally and in the village, as well as two pubs, B & Bs and two campsites nearby.  See
