Join our Heritage Lincolnshire Archaeology Club

Summer Term bookings are open now!

Using artefacts, we will explore the stories of people who have come and gone from Lincolnshire over the last 2,000 years, and learn the skills needed to tell their story

Dates are as follows for our second term:

April 30th

June 4th

July 2nd

10am-12pm at St Peter at Gowts Church Hall.

Working with the Lincoln Archaeology Group (LAG) for our summer term, the Archaeology Group will spend the three sessions practicing excavation, finds identification reconstruction and recording skills and considering what the finds tell us about the people of the past.

The group is being run by Heritage Lincolnshire, with DBS checked volunteers.  A copy of our risk assessment and safeguarding policy can be seen on request.  This is a ‘drop off’ club, and as such strict adult to child ratios will be maintained.  Attendance to the club can only be confirmed by filling in the membership and covid agreement forms and paying the term fee on our website.  You will then receive a confirmation email.

*Note: the January session will be a ‘remote’ session due to the high risk of Covid transmission after Christmas.  Club members will receive an activity pack in the post, and we will organise a zoom meet up on the 15th to give everyone a chance to connect, share pictures of their crafts and discuss our findings!  The location of the following sessions (remote or face to face) will be decided on a case by case basis.

We had a great time at our first Summer Term Archaeology Cub on Saturday 30th April 2022.
 
We worked with LAG and Jane Young to explore ceramics. The members were introduced to and got to handle lots of different types of pottery, including several types of 'puzzle' or trick jugs. They then decorated their own plant pots, broke them (with appropriate PPE of course!) and practiced reconstruction by putting them back together again.
 
Looks like they had a great time!
