September 14 to September 30
Woking Palace site, Old Woking
The 'Dig for a Day' scheme at Woking Palace offers those who have not been involved in archaeology before the chance to try digging for themselves, free of charge, through the excavation of Henry VIII's Palace of Woking, a scheduled Ancient Monument.
The 'Dig In' began on Friday (September 14) with a public open day to be held on Sunday September 30 from 11am when guided tours of the excavations will run until 4pm.
'Dig for a Day' sessions will take place on: 14, 15, 16, 21, 22, 23 and 28 September. The weekend days of 15 and 16 September and 22 and 23 are reserved in the first instance for those who are in full time employment. To permit the widest possible chance for novices to get involved the opportunity to participate is restricted to a single day or two-half days. Please note that 15 and 16 year olds must be accompanied on site by a parent.
BOOKING IS ESSENTIAL.
