Our Layers of History residential course is aimed at young people between the ages of 18 and 24. Staying at Brook House Barn in Scamblesby, and working on the lost medieval village of South Ormsby, the weekend will provide participants with cutting edge digital archaeology skills that will allow them to unlock the secrets of the historic landscape.
Following an introductory session on Friday the 31st of August, guests will stay overnight at the Brook House Barn, ready for a full day of landscape investigation on Saturday 1st of September. The hands on activities will introduce them to cutting edge archaeological techniques such as drone photography, 3-D modelling and geophysics as they reveal the lost medieval streets and properties preserved within the South Ormsby grounds. The end of the day will be a celebration at the Brook House Barn of a job well done and the following day, our guests will have a chance to explore the Wolds landscape from a different perspective as they embark on a tree top adventure at Wild Pines Park.
The residential course is priced at £150 per person including all accommodation, meals and activities.
