Moredun Top Dig 2017 open for booking http://www.taylp.org/moredun-dig-2017-open-for-booking/ http://www.taylp.org/moredun-dig-2017-open-for-booking/#respond Wed, 21 Dec 2016 15:41:31 +0000 http://www.taylp.org/?p=1614 Moredun Top dig 2017 is back for the third and final year excavating the complex Iron Age Hillfort. The dig runs from Tuesday 25 April – Saturday 20 May. In the last two digs we’ve found a possible Dun or Broch, part of shale bracelets, quern stones, a pivot stone, gaming pieces, stone lamps, beads and other evidence of occupation.

We’re looking for volunteers to join us through the month to help with the digging, no experience necessary as training will be given on site. Diggers days are Tuesdays – Saturdays, first day must be Tuesday or Friday for site induction and we ask for a minimum 2 day commitment. Free archaeology skills passports are available on request. Minimum age is 16 yrs.

The booking system is an online questionnaire using this link https://www.surveymonkey.co.uk/r/MoredunTop2017. Email or hard copy versions also available from Lindsey. Spaces will be allocated at the end of every month so please don’t worry if you don’t get a response for a few weeks, I will be in touch.

Here’s what our volunteers had to say about last year’s dig:

‘As a first time volunteer I now have a far greater understanding of the Perthshire iron age history and how archaeology contributes to this.’

‘The ‘hands on’ approach ensured we were fully involved in all aspects of the dig’

‘New learning experiences but above all it was fantastic fun!! ‘

Once you’ve booked, if things change and you can no longer come please do let us know as it’s really important we know how many people we have on site each day as this effects how we run the dig.

Any questions please get in touch
