This is not an ordinary field school - this is a ‘Training Field School’ where you will learn about all aspects of archaeological excavation and receive hands on training and learning from archaeological professionals in the heart of Sherwood Forest…
As well as all the above you will learn about the history and archaeology of Sherwood Forest, and also about the designed royal hunting landscape and Palace at its heart. Mercian Archaeological Services CIC run the Sherwood Forest Archaeology Project and are at the leading edge of research into this landscape of legends…
All techniques are taught and experienced throughout the week, with hands on training from our Archaeological experts.
Field Days include lunch provided by our field caterers which will be eaten in our welfare area in the field.
Hands on learning and training is supplemented with lunchtime seminars covering many of the subjects above to provide the theory behind the practice.

You will receive training and experience in:

Contexts records,
Pottery identification,
Finds handling,
Finds processing,
