Nottinghamshire County Council is keen to get local people involved in a handbook of archaeology guide to ensure it is easy to use and contains the right level of information.
The guide is being funded by the Heritage Lottery Fund through the Trent Vale Landscape Partnership. It will cover a number of areas, including researching the history of piece of land, carrying out an excavation safely and effectively and interpreting archaeological finds. Emily Gillott, Community Archaeologist at Nottinghamshire County Council, said: "We are looking for people with a passion for archaeology to come along to one of the workshops and help contribute to the guide. "We hope the guide will help equip local groups with the knowledge and skills to get involved in their own archaeological projects safely and in the correct manner."
The sessions are as follows:
Saturday 21 January 9.30am to 2pm – Beckingham Willow Works
Wednesday 25 January 6.30pm to 9pm – Norwell Village Hall
Monday 30 January 9.30am to 2pm – Farndon Memorial Hall
Refreshments and buffet food will be available at the sessions.
