Calendar for July 2015
There will be concurrently various geophysics and other archaeological investigations under way.
Daily timings during the digging days
The digging will take place from 1100-1600 each day and the site will close at 1700.The living history camp will have separate timings and it is hoped that this will provide a facility for night-time site security, although there were no problems last year when the site was left secure but unguarded.
There will be a guided walk round the battlefield each Saturday & Sunday at 1600. It will start and finish at the living history camp. This walk is open to the public and volunteers.
Bad weather plan
The site is not exposed and protected by the tree canopy. Tents and shelters for the working areas, storage and administration will be provided. So it is not anticipated that the weather will have a significant impact on progress. However, the possibility of flooding cannot be excluded and this could lead to some delay or postponement. However the site will be closed to the public if the rain is cascading down to limit surface erosion.
