Hello, and welcome to We Dig the Castle 2017
We're Laura and Matt, from Trent & Peak Archaeology, and we'll be delivering the training on site. Trainees will also be spending time with our colleagues Alison and David, and with specialists who'll be visiting us to deliver workshops and tutorials.
The excavation starts on Monday 17 July and we can't wait to meet this year's trainees.
Over the coming weeks Alison and our Explainer volunteers will be keeping you posted with news from the dig. They'll be sharing photos and telling you about trainees' experiences on site, some of the finds and features uncovered, and our changing understanding of the history and archaeology of this part of the Nottingham Castle site.
If you're in the Castle grounds why not come up and see how the excavation's going.
More news on Monday!
