As part of the 2014 Chatsworth Road Festival (4th-12th October) MBArchaeology will be running a small-scale Community Archaeology project. This will run from Monday 6th to Saturday 11th October.
Our aim is to help people become involved in their local heritage and archaeology, and support them in carrying out fieldwork along Chatsworth Road in Chesterfield. The project will involve digging small, 1m2 test pits at a local school and pub as well as resident’s gardens. We will also be hosting some Finds Analysis sessions, family archaeology workshops and a final celebration event to inform the public what we did and what we found out.
The project is supported by funding from Chesterfield Borough Council.
