Community Archaeology at Spa Ponds – Book your place today!

Hello All
The Spa Ponds Heritage Project is very excited to announce arrangements for Community Archaeology to take place at Spa Ponds. Thanks to our Heritage Lottery Fund grant we are able to offer all of these activities free of charge!
In conjunction with MBArchaeology, we are now planning the Field Work schedule for the Spa Ponds Heritage Project and we have the following dates and tasks scheduled:
1) Monday 12 June – Packman’s Way cross-section surveys & Deer Park recording
2) Tuesday 13 June – Pond ‘0’ (‘Fern Gully’) survey
3) Thursday 15 June – Field Visit: Scarcliffe Park (an example of a deer park)
4) Tuesday 20 June – Geophysical survey
5) Thursday 22 June – Peel and ‘scoop/pit’ recording
Those interested in taking part in any or all of these activities MUST book a place with Matt so that he can gauge numbers and devise a plan for each day.
Please therefore confirm your attendance on one or more of these exciting and important activities by e-mailing him via at your earliest convenience.
Also, Matt will be leading an Introductory Workshop to explore all these activities on Friday 2nd June from 11:30am to 2.30pm at the Flint Avenue Community Centre. There is no need to book onto
this Workshop, at which Matt will guide us through the Field Work activities and explain what we will be doing and how we will do it for each day.
This is a very special opportunity to be involved in some important community-based archaeological field work at Spa Ponds that will help us record features that have never previously been recorded. The information we discover will directly feed into our Heritage Management Plan for the site.
Don’t be shy, please get in touch with Consultant Archaeologist Matt Beresford of MBArchaeology, by sending him an e-mail message to:
