Redditch residents have the chance to take part in a community archaeology dig in Beoley over the weekend of October 2-3.
Neighbouring village Beoley is one of six medieval settlements being explored as part of a Worcestershire-wide archaeology project called ‘Small Pits, Big Ideas’.
Over the weekend 15 ‘test pits’ – which are one metre square archaeological digs – will be excavated across the village of Holt End in Beoley, in the hope of answering questions about the village’s origins and development over time.
Now local residents can get hands on unearthing the past – and no previous experience of archaeology is needed.
To take part or to find out more email: firstname.lastname@example.org or call 01905 844090.
